Clumps of clivias
« on: March 08, 2013, 08:54:21 »
Hi all..

After looking many times in Marias topic with the pictures of Mike Riskas clumps of Sir John Thouron plants, I got this Idea, that we need a topic to share pictures of big clumps of mature clivias in pots or what they happens to stay in.. 

So I hope that some of you have some wonderful pictures to share!   :rule:

Hi Mark,

Here is a pic of my 'Aenne', a post World Ware II Belgian hybrid, in family since the early 60s. It's growing in a 50cm (20inches) container. I used it in numerous crossings.

Bravo Joerg!

That is a truly wonderful plant and the most precious heirloom - I just love  to look at this photo  and think how much care and attention the plant has received over half a century.

I hope you can provide some details for us: what media are you using? Have many offsets been removed? Where does the plant grow?

What a great start to a brilliant idea. Thanks to Mark for setting this in motion.

Stunning, Joerg.  It must be in one big (and heavy) pot.

I don't have a photo of the whole plant.  But, here are triple umbels on SJT from last year.

Great topic, Mark.  I think more plants should become specimens.

Lovely idea and photos.  I would like to know how you keep your outside plants so clean though.  :)

Beautiful flowers Joerg and Gail.

I love the fact that Joerg has had his in the family for so long. Is this the plant that started your addiction Joerg?

Great topic cannot wait to see more pictures, unfortunately like some others my own photos of clumps will be a few years off too  :'(

Oh well good things come to those who wait! (We are ALL due a lot of good things I think - the amount of waiting we do  LOL)

Wow that is a treasure Joerg, what a wonderful robust and happy plant. How great that the family has treasured it and carried on the history
Gail your SJT pic is magic too.  I love the big pots of plants they put on such a show.
