  • Clivia is one of the more primitive genera of the Amaryllidaceae. These have neither bulbs nor rhizomes, but possess an abundance of thick rope-like roots. They are evergreen, and have predominantly orange, red or salmon colored flowers. Clivia are native to southern AfricaClivia miniata is both beautiful and indestructible. Deep green, straplike leaves arch 2-3 feet above the crown, forming a graceful fountain.
