"Clivias are undeniably aristocrats of horticulture. They are classed among the most desirable of all connoisseur plants, offering not only spectacular flowers, but also interesting variations in both leaf varigation and plant form....The name Clivia is pronounced 'klive-ee-ah' and it describes a genus of southern African plants belonging to the family Amaryllidaceae that are named in honor of Lady Charlotte Florentia Clive." From Clivias by Harold Koopowitz.
Photos from this fall's Clivia gardenii and interspecific blooming season are now available in our Gallery. Click Here or on Gallery in the Menu Bar above to view the new additions. You can also click on Gallery to view previous galleries.
We have started adding new varieties to our store. And will continue to do so through March. These additions are either divisions removed from the mother plant or plants grown from seed where we have decided to limit the number kept. If you do not find what you want today, please check back as new additions may meet your needs. Please Click Here or on Our Store in the Menu Bar above to view the current offerings anytime.
Colorado Clivia Company is the home to a collection of Clivia, a plant native to South Africa. Most of this collection includes very special genetic characteristics. We are always on the lookout for smaller more compact plants, wider leaves, fuller umbels, larger blossoms, and unusual colors within the six Clivia species. Each year we take special care to add new and interesting items to our collection, many imported from South Africa and other countries. And using the collection we periodically produce seeds, seedlings, and plants so we can share the exciting things we have found or developed. We would encourage all to go to Our Store to view our current offerings.
Our collection of almost 2000 plants is housed in a commercial greenhouse located in the western suburbs of Denver, Colorado. Here we enjoy a climate with over 300 sunny days per year, and because of our mile high ground elevation, a brighter, more intense sunlight than found in many parts of the United States. Our greenhouse is generally not open to the public, but if you via email, we would be happy to arrange a special tour.
