An Old Fashioned Beauty
« on: September 12, 2010, 10:22:00 »
Hi Forum.

I thought I would share some pictures of one of my favourite clivias. This is a broadleaf plant suspected to be of Mamoth breeding. For some reason it make me think of an old fasioned plant. Dont know why. But i do love this clivia, and have concentrated my breeding program around it last year, and again this year.

Hi Mark,
          I like the size of the flowers and tight umbel on your plant. Like you I believe the Mammoth plants have untapped potential. Here are my Mammoth bred plants. The first has broad leaves like yours and the second is a Cream x Mammoth who's umbel stands high above the plant. I dont like ambushing posts but all of these Mammoth bred plants are worth talking about.

Two more photos to of this plant to add.
Just to give you an idea on size, this plant is growing in a large 500mm pot and it completely dwarfs the pot.

Just a few more photos as the flowers are opening:
