Clivia 'Orange Trumpet' - A robust plant with fairly long medium width green leaves and a tight inflorescence that rises just above the foliage bearing a uniform umbel of many 1 1/2-inch-wide tangerine orange flowers with nicely flared petal tips.

As with the species Clivia miniata, this cultivar 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. A very ornate plant!

Clivia 'Orange Trumpet' plant was a selected seedling grown at our nursery from seed purchased as "Nakamura Interspecific" seed in April 2001 from Connie & James Abel of Pretoria and it reportedly came off of a selected plant from Japanese Clivia breeder Yoshikazu Nakamura. Judging from the flowers it certainly has Clivia miniata in its parentage - for more information about this parent species and the other cultivars of it we grow see Clivia miniata. We named and first released Clivia 'Orange Trumpet' for sale in 2017. 

This information about Clivia 'Orange Trumpet' displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources. We also will relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
