"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.
As in the past, our Store was closed during the holidays due to delays by the various shipping companies. We are now open. To view the Store click on Our Store in the bar at the top of each page or click Our Store. Please note, free ground shipping will only be available via UPS and only when deliveries are scheduled for 3 days or less. Currently most U S Post Office Priority Mail shipments are not completed in 3 days, so that is no longer an option. During the winter, our cold weather protective packaging only works for 72 hours or 3 days. Any purchases which cannot be shipped in three days or less will be held for warmer weather.
Like in the past few years, Clivia in the greenhouse are starting the blooming process early. We expect peak blooming season to occur in middle Februray. So stay tuned for a new photo gallery to be posted in March. In the mean time you can view galleries of previous years at the Menu Bar Gallery. Enjoy.
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 over 800 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. Due to the virus, our greenhouse is not open to the public, but if you have questions please feel free to contact us via email at .
