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 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. A very ornate plant! This 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 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. We first released this plant for sale in 2017.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Clivia 'Orange Trumpet'.
