Clivia caulescens (Stalked Clivia) - This plant has spreading, floppy leaves and produces flower heads smaller than in C. miniata with pendant, funnel-shaped, pale red flowers with yellow stamens. It typically grows to about 2 to 3 feet tall. It is different than all the other Clivias, because of the thick stalk, up to 3 feet long that terminates with leaves at top giving this plant the common name Stalked Clivia. As with other Clivia, C. caulescens prefers light shade, fairly frost free conditions and dislikes water logged soils. It is native to the eastern Transvaal in South Africa, and to Swaziland. Our plants are grown from seed from Silverhill Seeds in South Africa. Some consider this a form of C. nobilis.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery and our own landscape plantings and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Clivia caulescens
