Description

Clivia miniata, the Natal lily or bush lily or kaffir lily, is native to woodland habitats in South Africa and Eswatini. Given suitable conditions it grows into large clumps and is surprisingly water wise. It is also reportedly naturalized in Mexico. It is a popular plant for shady areas and is commonly seen growing in older established suburbs in most Australian states. It is also popular in New Zealand, Japan, China and the USA, particularly California.

The bush lily has a fleshy, mostly underground stem (rhizome) to 2 cm (1 in) in diameter, with numerous fleshy roots. The stem produces long, arching, strap-like leaves growing to about 45 cm (18 in) long. The showy yellow flowers are funnel-shaped, sometimes with a faint, but very sweet perfume.

It is sometimes known in cultivation as "Kaffir lily" (a term considered offensive in South Africa).

It contains small amounts of lycorine, making it poisonous.

With a minimum temperature of 10 °C (50 °F), in temperate regions C. miniata is normally cultivated as a houseplant. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. In warmer sites, it can grow outdoors and is used in landscapes for its attractive evergreen foliage and showy flowers. This clump-forming plant spreads via rhizomes and is particularly suited for shady areas.

Note: This listing is for one seed. If you are looking for more seeds per pack please view our Clivia mixes. The seed looks like a tiny bulb (see images).

Availability: If these seeds are showing out of stock, we strongly recommend joining our wait list, as these seeds have a very shorty viability window, and this helps ensure you get the freshest seeds possible! If they are available, they will only be available for a short time.

Germination: These magnificent plants are easy to germinate! Place the bulbs about half way into a tropical plant mix. Keep moist, but never saturated with water. Place in a warm location out of direct sun.
