    Clivia miniata var. citrina is a luminous evergreen perennial with strap-shaped leaves and large clusters of 20-40 light lemon-yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers to 7cm long between spring and autumn. Slightly fragrant, long-lasting and prized for its brilliant flowers, this gorgeous houseplant boasts lush green, virtually blemish-free foliage when not in bloom.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Once flowering is finished remove faded blooms near the base and reduce watering through the winter, but don't let it dry out completely. To allow new flowers to form it needs a cool period around 10°C from November to February when you water sparingly. After this period you can start to feed with a balanced fertiliser each week until the the buds form, then move it to a warmer room (approximately 16°C) and increase watering. Keep away from radiators or direct sun, and try not to disturb the plant when in flower. Sponge leaves occasionally.
