A variable species with long leaves ending in a point.

Clivia gardenii flowers from late autumn into winter. Flower colour can be very variable. This one was photographed at Kew, and has fairly typical deep orange flowers.

This is my own plant. I was very pleased when it produced these pale peachy-orange flowers with a large green tip. There is also a very beautiful yellow flowered form, and maybe as the price falls over the next few years, I will be able to try a single seed!
