Clivia x cyrtanthiflora 'Salmon Beauty' - An evergreen perennial with strap-like dark green foliage to about 2 feet tall with clusters of trumpet shaped dark salmon-orange flowers that lighten with age and dangle down on stalks that rise well above the foliage on stout dark stems. Flowering can occur nearly in any month of the year but primarily in spring.

Plant in a morning sun or and shaded area. We have found this plant is hardy to temperatures down to 25 F under the protection of trees. An attractive plant in our out of flower.

Clivia 'Salmon Beauty' is a hybrid that is the result of an initial cross between 2 species of Clivia, Clivia miniata and Clivia nobilis with the resulting primary hybrid called Clivia x cyrtanthiflora, which is a plant we also grow, but in this case the resulting hybrids from this cross were crossed back again with one parent having yellow flowers. This cultivar was a selected seedling grown at our nursery from seed purchased in 2001 as F2 Clivia x cyrtanthiflora x Clivia cyrtanthiflora 'Yellow'. The seed came from Rudo Lotter of Cyrtanthiflora Breeders in Pretoria South Africa. We named and first released this plant for sale in 2017 and have other selected plants from this group, some pure yellow and others orange and yellow that we hope to introduce in the future. For more information about the Clivia x cyrtanthiflora cross and other similar hybrids that we grow, see our listing for Clivia x cyrtanthiflora
