Clivia is one of the best of all houseplants with glowing orange flowers, attractive fruit, and gorgeous foliage. This one is variably variegated.
Clivia miniata has been a favourite of plantlovers since Victorian times. This cultivar has dark green leaves variably variegated with white to cream stripes. It produces beautiful clusters of glowing orange flowers in late spring, summer, or fall. The resulting large fruit lasts for two years, first green then brilliant red which is fantastic against the foliage especially at Christmas time. Minimum two degrees Celsius. Photo: Wikipedia
