Clivia caulescens is one of five Clivia species endemic to South Africa; it has pendent, tubular, 2-3 inch long flowers similar to Clivia nobilis and Clivia gardenii, but differs from these by forming long stems with aerial roots.   These stems can reach 2-3′ or more and can flop over and grow along the ground terminating with long, floppy green leaves.  The tubular flowers transition from a deep orange throat to brilliant green tips.  Clivias are an essential addition to you garden or plant collection with their bold evergreen foliage, brightly colored flowers and large orange to red seed pods in the fall.

Clivia caulescens prefer to grow in light shade in very well-drained soil in climates that are free of frost.  These plants thrive and are dramatic grown in containers and can easily be brought inside during winter. 

Other Clivias available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery include Clivia miniata with yellow flowers, Clivia hybrids with orange flowers and variegated foliage and Clivia nobilis.  In addition, I am growing many hybrids Clivia from seed and will make these available after they develop their first blooms.
