SEMI FROST HARDY
MEDIUM WATER REQUIREMENTS
Clivia is a fast-growing, evergreen perennial that forms a neat clump of strappy leaves. The orange or yellow flowers are long-lasting and signal the end of winter. The plant will tolerate moderate frost, but if affected will quickly recover in summer.
After the flowering season, Clivia bears attractive, bright red berries which if left to ripen, drop to release seeds.
I’ve noticed that clivias grown in full shade flower later in spring than those which receive a little sun.
