"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.
After more than 30 wonderful years of collecting these fabulous plants and associating with the many wonderful people that comes along with that, the time has come to close down the collection of 462 pots of Clivia plants. A huge thank you goes out to all who have been part of the process. Photos in the galleries and this website will remain up until next spring when the site will be closed down as well. Thank you every one for a terrific adventure.
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 have always been 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 took special care to add new and interesting items to our collection, many imported from South Africa and other countries.
Our collection was housed in a commercial greenhouse located in the western suburbs of Denver, Colorado. Here we enjoyrd 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.
