Clivia miniata

Clivia miniata-3

Clivia miniata is a perennial bulb with orange-red flower clusters in spring above evergreem. dark green straplike leaves.  This Amaryllis relative makes a long-lived and almost indestructible houseplant and thrives with neglect.  It prefers to be kept quite dry and flowers best when the roots are crowded in a small container.   Hardy to 25 degrees F.  We grow it as a houseplant in winter and an outdoor container plant in summer. Outdoor containers must be kept in the shade as the foliage will burn in direct sunlight.
