As you can see, it is a brilliant orange, the flowers are exceptionally large and open quite flat (see the flower, centre left). Fantastic, thanks, Sis. Continue reading

When we were there, most of the Clivias were just in bud but, in a week or two, the whole area will be amass with blooms. Continue reading
