Clivia miniata var. citrina


Planted in April 2016 by Roger Voysey and Linsay Durham, these light yellow coloured Clivias are still a beautiful sight at the main entrance to Steenbok by the bird bath.

This perennial, clump forming plant is very well know in its orange form and thanks to this donation 3 years ago, we can now also enjoy the yellow variety.

Easily recognisable by its dark green, straped-shape arching leaves, it is normally found in the shade. The inflorescence emerges from the centre of the plant and can carry up to 30 flowers.

These funnel-shaped flowers are followed by golden fruits which is one way to propagate the Clivia, the other being the division of the clumps, which is to be done straight after flowering.
