Clivia or Kaffir Lily, photographed at Mogo, New South Wales, Australia.
This genus in the amaryllis (Amaryllidaceae) family is made up of just 4 species of perennials from southern Africa. While these plants are best suited to warmer conditions, and can tolerate only the lightest of frosts, they can be enjoyed as container plants in cooler climates. They produce strong flower stems that are topped with heads of funnel-shaped flowers in vibrant hues of yellow, orange, and red from late Winter to early Spring. Attractive bright red berries follow the flowers.
