Clivia x cyrtanthiflora (Hybrid Clivia) - This evergreen perennial is the result of crossing 2 species of Clivia, Clivia miniata and C. noblis. It has strap-like foliage to about 2 feet tall with clusters of orange flowers that dangle down on stalks that rise just above foliage. Flowering can occur nearly in any month of the year. Plant in near frostless and shaded areas of your garden or grow indoors in containers. We have found this plant is hardy to temperatures down to 26 degrees F. Our plants from propagation stock originally provided by Ilie Gaceu of the Strybing Arboretum.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any 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 x cyrtanthiflora.
