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 information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Clivia miniata 'Arturo's Yellow'.
