Description:

Clivia gardenii is a hardy, fairly slow growing perennial with dark, strap-shaped leaves.

It sends out side shoots to form quite large clumps. It bears, on long flowering stalks, a head of beautiful, slender orange tubular flowers with green tips that are pendulous.

A wonderful sight when it blooms en masse from June to September. Decorative, fleshy red berries will persist on the plant until the next flowering season.

As it is a shallow rooted forest plant, it requires well-drained soil and regular mulching with compost.

It is beautiful planted under trees and also makes a great container plant. Birds relish the berries.
