Presented here are the plants of our collection of the six species of Clivia. View our collection, buy Clivia, learn how to grow Clivia, and enjoy your visit.
"Clivias are undeniably aristocrats of horticulture. They are classed among the most desirable of all connoisseur plants, offering not only spectacular flowers, but also interesting variations in both leaf varigation and plant form....The name Clivia is pronounced 'klive-ee-ah' and it describes a genus of southern African plants belonging to the family Amaryllidaceae that are named in honor of Lady Charlotte Florentia Clive." From Clivias by Harold Koopowitz.
Photos from last fall's blooming season are now available in our Gallery. Click on the 2016 fall Clivia Gallery to view the new additions. You can also click on the Menu Bar Gallery to view previous galleries. Included in the 2016 fall gallery are photos of various Clivia miniata fruits. These fruits were the result of pollinations in spring 2016. All have been now harvested and the seeds inside sprouted. In three or four years, these galleries will show if the crosses were successful. Here is hoping all find it interesting.
We are starting to add several new plants to our store. Please check back often as things are being added weekly.
With new items being periodically added and previously listed items selling out, our store is always changing. If you see something in one of the galleries, or on the other web site pages, and do not see it for sale in Our Store, just drop us an email expressing your interest and you will be placed on the wait list for that item. While the wait list is not always fast, you do get first notice when something becomes available. Many high demand plants never make it to the public section of Our Store.
Colorado Clivia Company is the home to a collection of Clivia, a plant native to South Africa. Most of this collection includes very special genetic characteristics. We are always on the lookout for smaller more compact plants, wider leaves, fuller umbels, larger blossoms, and unusual colors within the six Clivia species. Each year we take special care to add new and interesting items to our collection, many imported from South Africa and other countries. And using the collection we periodically produce seeds, seedlings, and plants so we can share the exciting things we have found or developed. We would encourage all to go to Our Store to view our current offerings.
Our collection of almost 2000 plants is housed in a commercial greenhouse located in the western suburbs of Denver, Colorado. Here we enjoy a climate with over 300 sunny days per year, and because of our mile high ground elevation, a brighter, more intense sunlight than found in many parts of the United States. Our greenhouse is generally not open to the public, but if you via email, we would be happy to arrange a special tour.
