The common colour is orange, but a rarer yellow variety is highly prized. A rounded flower head of funnel-shaped blooms appears atop a 2' stalk, the growth habit being reminiscent of Agapanthus. In frostless zones, Clivia may be grown outdoors in bright shade, but it is generally cultivated as a house plant.
For optimum growth, Clivia needs rich, moist soil and bright indirect sunlight. It may bloom anywhere from December to April, but you should know that you may have to wait for a couple of years for the plant to begin to bloom. Being so unusual, Clivias require some financial investment with plants ranging anywhere from $30 to $200 each.
