Clivia miniata 'Arturo's Yellow' (Select Yellow Clivia) - This selected form of the unique yellow-blooming Clivia typically commences flowering in mid to late winter and continues through early spring. After flowering, plants can produce showy fruit which, like the flowers, are yellow. As with the species it is a very tough evergreen plant that is best suited to a dry shaded location in a fairly frost free garden but it will tolerate situations with regular irrigation as well as winter temperatures into the low 20s F. In colder climates plants can be brought in during the winter. This seedling strain was developed by our Production Supervisor Arturo Garcia. It is a result from crossing several of our plants that are particularly vigorous and have broad petals and deep yellow flowers. The progeny of this cross are all very robust plants with large flowers. We first started selling these plants in 2005.  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 miniata 'Arturo's Yellow'.
