Clivia are incredibly tough, resiliant plant which brighten the garden during late winter and early spring with clusters of vibrant yellow throated, orange or salmon trumpet flowers. The flowers are held on stalks above the clump of dark green strap-like leaves.
Clivias come from South Africa and grow in most areas of Australia – from Tasmania to the Tropics. In colder areas such as the mountains and Tasmania clivias need protection from frost and extreme cold.
