These Clivias were bred from imported Chinese Clivia seed.
Clivias originate from South Africa but growers from around the world have made important contributions in selective breeding for different attributes. Chinese bred Clivias tend to be bred for broad, symmetrically arranged leaves and compact growth. Some also have interesting variegation or very visible veins on the leaves.
The seedlings listed here have dark green, very broad glossy leaves and will grow to be a shorter, more compact plant than most of the Clivias grown in Australia. The flowers are the same as other varieties.
Chinese Clivias look great in pots and are ideal for patios or indoors as they are neat, attractive plants all year round.
These plants are over a year old, but won't flower for about 2 to 3 years. Most have about 4 leaves.
