Clivia is. These plants were a gift from a fellow gardener so just have them for all of us to enjoy. They are awesome. Hope they are still blooming at Open House but we will see.
Clivia plants are native to South Africa and have become quite popular with collectors. These unusual plants derived their name from the Lady Florentina Clive and are though so exquisite that they fetch a hefty price—upwards of $50 or more per plant.
While most clivias are grown as interesting houseplants, in suitable locations they can be grown as outdoor container plants. However, they must be brought indoors for overwintering. The attraction to clivia plants can be found in their stunning blooms, which vary in color from pale orange to red. The fragrant, trumpet-like flowers are similar to that of amaryllis but smaller. Unlike the amaryllis, clivias retain their foliage year round. Till next time, this is Becky Litterer from Becky's Greenhouse, Dougherty
