Saw this lovely sea of clivias, and felt like adding content today.
This is a campus nearby and recently planted out. Hope they get enough shade this summer. it was interesting to see the variety in the mass.

Beautiful Michael, but when the sun moves south, I see major damage to follow.

Michael
Thanks for the post - I notice the split unit airconditioners.
 Some of the healthiest outdoor Clivias I've ever seen were proximate to just such a bank of fans in a courtyard of the Admin Building of the University of Pretoria. I think the constant movement of air has something to do with it.

Thanks Michael for sharing. Yes, we need to encourage more clivia planting in public gardens or parks.  That is the best way to promote public awareness of how beautiful clivias can be as garden plants.  We addicts have a duty to do just that and should not just keep clivias in our private collections as hobby.   :rule:

In 2005, the Shaw Center for the Arts (http://www.shawcenter.org/) opened in Baton Rouge.  Sometime that fall or winter, someone planted about 60 full-grown yellow clivia, which bloomed in the spring of 2006.   I only knew a little about clivia at that time, but I knew as soon as the brutal summer arrived, those plants would be in trouble - in the full sun, with almost no shade.  Sure enough, almost all of them were cooked by September and different plants appeared that fall.

It was a good idea to use clivia in the landscape, but poorly executed.  I hope the clivia at the Uni do better!
