Clivia 'Tangerine Burst' - A robust plant with fairly long and medium width green leaves that produces an inflorescence that rises just above the foliage bearing a broad full umbel of many 2 inch wide bright tangerine orange flowers. As with Clivia miniata, this plant has proven to be a 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 mid 20s F. In colder climates plants can be brought in during the winter. A very ornamental selection that we have been building stock on for over 20 years before releasing it in 2021. 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, the pre-eminent Japanese Clivia breeder who grows his plants at his Nakamura (Nakamura Kunshien Clivia Breeding Plantation) in Mobara, a city in the Chiba Prefecture on the main island of Honshu in Japan. Though it is presumed to be a hybrid between Clivia miniata and Clivia nobilis, this is not known for sure so we do not list this plant as a selction of Clivia x cyrtanthiflora (the name used for the cross between these two species). This is a sister seedling of Clivia x cyrtanthiflora 'Orange Trumpet', which has slightly tall flower stalks and smaller more pendulous flowers. 

This information about Clivia 'Tangerine Burst' 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.
