This South African evergreen is usually grown as a houseplant, especially in colder regions. Also known as Bush Lily, Flame Lily, Forest Lily or Kaffir Lily. They have stout stems to 2 feet and dark green leaves. The flowers are funnel-shaped, but more trumpet shaped than tubular and face outward.
Clivia are shipped bare-root slips (fans) from blooming size plants. They can bloom the first year; however we remove the flower because they will try to bloom in storage. They will most likely take a growing season to re-establish before they start blooming again.
Browning on any leaves present is normal since we stop watering and lower the temperature to force dormancy during winter. They should take right off again when planted.
