|Clivia miniata is an outstanding shade plant in Zones 10 and 11 (Zone 9, too, with some protection from frost). It flaunts large clusters of orange trumpet-like flowers, followed by red berries, and glossy, strap-like evergreen leaves. Mostly March to April bloomers, in warmer climates blooming season can begin in December. Use them in borders. A great house plant for cold climates, set them outdoors in summer. Excellent as container patio plants elsewhere, as plants bloom best when pot-bound. Grow with ferns, Azaleas and other shade-loving plants. Fertilize monthly during spring and summer to encourage flowering. Divide in spring, though the plants like crowded roots.
Along with the types that bear clusters of 10 to 20 deep orange flowers with yellow centers, growers offer varieties with salmon, yellow, scarlet, and white blooms.
