Clivias in my garden - Trafalgar, South Coast, KZN, South Africa

The Clivia (pronounced Clee-via) is indigenous to Southern Africa where they grow wild in forested woodland areas.

The flowers are carried in clusters on stout stems and range in colour from rich oranges to shades of deep red.

The leaves are strap shaped, fleshy and even when not in flower; the foliage provides excellent dark green cover.

Prized for their ability to flower in shade, they are an ideal plant for massed planting under trees or in shady areas. Clivias are extremely hardy and drought-resistant but do not thrive in direct sunlight or frost areas
