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.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have 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 cyrtanthiflora 'Orange Trumpet'.
