Clivia, Clivia miniata, Queen of the Shadows, Natal Lily, Bush Lily, blooming plant

They are herbaceous or evergreen perennial plants, with green, strap-like leaves. Individual flowers are bell-shaped, occurring in umbels on a stalk above the foliage

Delightful to the eye, drought tolerant. Either grow indoors or outdoors, just as long as they get indirect sunlight, they will bloom. No direct sun for Clivia (kli vee uh).

Most mature clivias will flower twice a year, occasionally even more. Expect at least one blooming session in winter (it’s their normal season), but it’s certainly not unusual to see them bloom again in the summer and sometimes yet again in the fall.

They will be shipped with no soil and pot! The shipping of these plants is difficult and a pot will make it easier for plant to be damaged during shipment. You must have your own soil and pot or ground (in complete shade) ready for your plant

Remember, this plant does not bloom all year long. Each plant is different, and each has their own attitude/personality. Some have more leaves than others, and may have a different shade of green and copper, some have more roots than others, and some are larger than others. Then some have their leaves go in sync with each other, and as you can see from the photos, some let their leaves go every which way.

This member of the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae) bears clusters of 10-15 trumpet-shaped flowers above a thick, upright stem. Bright orange flowers.

How to Make Clivia Bloom

Give Lily a cool, dry rest for 6-8 weeks in fall to make it bloom. If you live where winters are cold, you can keep the potted clivia on your porch or patio for a month before the first frost, then bring it back inside and keep it in a cool room until midwinter.

After this rest,  increase water along with normal room temperatures will bring a spectacular show of blooms in March or April or like this year, 2022, some are now in May.

After the Bloom

Cut off the spent flower head. Wait till the flower stem begins to shrivel before cutting it off at the base of the plant. You can continue to display the plant, its glossy fan of leaves will still be attractive.

This beautiful bloomer flowers best when it is slightly pot-bound and can stay in the same pot for 3 years or more. Its thick, fleshy roots often appear on the surface of the soil. Just top dress every year by topping with fresh soil as needed.

An easy plant for containers for a bright but shady spot spring thru fall, leaving outside in the fall long enough to trigger floral initiation under cool temps  **do NOT let them freeze**

Shipping will be the Monday or Tuesday after your order is placed. I can ship any other day as long as you message me to let me know its okay. The goal is for your plant to reach you without spending any extra time sitting around a post office 😀

Your cutting will be carefully wrapped and packaged so that no damage can occur. The heat may get to it, but it should bounce back quickly after getting some fresh air and water.

*** please remember that we are all experiencing high temperatures. PLEASE bring your package inside and unpack it as soon as you possibly can.

    First of all, these mahoes were very difficult to locate–and Cindi had two. Second of all, they arrived in perfect condition. The packing was amazing, and I’ve ordered lots of plants online. Highly recommend CindisPlayground!
