Clivia x cyrtanthiflora 'Salmon Beauty' - This hybrid evergreen perennial is the result of an initial cross between 2 species of Clivia, Clivia miniata and C. nobilis and in this case hybrids from this cross were crossed back again. It has strap-like 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. This plant was a selected seedling grown at our nursery from seed purchased in 2001 as F2 Clivia x cyrtanthiflora x C. cyrtanthiflora 'Yellow'. It came from Rudo Lotter of Cyrtanthiflora Breeders in Pretoria South Africa. We 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.
