Clivia Interspecific
« on: July 15, 2011, 15:53:09 PM »
This one has been sold to me as a Clivia Gardenii but as the source is a bit suspect being from ebay I cannot say that with certainty.

Perhaps somebody would be as kind and varify it for me  ???

But either way she is a rather pretty thing in spite of the little slug nibbles which I found too late  >:(

That's an interspecific, maybe from seed off a gardenii with stray miniata pollen. A very nice interspecific, by the way. :good:

I really like these plants.

Yours is beautiful Abby. I like the versicolour effect.

Rena, can you give us more info on your 2 plants? Do you know anything about their makeup or history?

The first is most probably a Nobilis F1, with Nobilis as (pod /Berry) parent.

Regards, Clemens.

Yes Rena

It has blossomed again and should be in berries but at the moment I am trying to
track down various plants as the last lot of gale winds blew my tags and some pots to 'smitheries.'

I note it is a terracota pot so I will check on it in the morning.

Bill - sorry! it has to stay "William" as the real William was never called Bill ;D

Clemens -

Unfortunately I don't have any info on these two plants - William gave me a plant from a clump that was in his garden when he moved in - no history.  And the other plant was an offset of a plant that was given to me long ago, also with no history.  William is an untidy plant with long strappy leaves but the 2nd one (I think I'll have to call it "Bill" just to differentiate!) has a much nicer shape - I'll see if I can take a quick photo before the rain starts.
