    Red Cyrtanthiflora

    With its unusual retuse notched leaf showing the trait of C. Nobilis



    On a tall 45 cm Scape hang








    33 x 4.5cm Florets, so beautifully balanced


    I'm sure 'tickled pink' with this one

    This is a rather exquisite form of Clivia that may be grown in a pot or in the garden.

    Requires shade and is frost tender

    Clivia Miniata var Citrina

    A couple of pix of my Clivia Miniata Citrina

    It had only 13 blooms which was a bit disappointing but the colour is superb.

    Hopefully next time the bloom count will increase.

    I X it with Red Cyrtanthiflora with hopes the the 33 floret count will improve in the offsprings.

    My, Abby, these are spectacular ! I especially love the red, but then there's the yellow, but then......Oh, I do NOT need to fall in love w/anything else. I have 2 clivia and hoped to hold it to that...but probably not . I'll at least need to sneak in that red...yellow...or arghhhhhhh .

    I selfed the red and X the yellow with the red so if I get seeds and I can send you a couple of each that is of course that they do not abort.

    But they are a bit contrary and take 3 -5 years to bloom from seed.

    The yellow I got as one year old and now has its maiden bloom - maybe next time it may have more florets

    How kind and generous you are, Abby! Thank you. Are clivia particular when being grown from seed?
    As for the yellow having more blooms...in my eyes it's a bloomin' winner already. Can't wait til next time!
