Looks like no one else appreciate these! Stunning displays, all of them. A clump is just so much more striking than a single plant in a pot.

Really like the shape of that 3rd plant.

A belated thanks for sharing these.

Hi Clemens

Only the ghosts of members past are still around!

I thinned out my pots of clivia a lot  last season and that 3rd photo's plant was one that was on the way to the "Clivia Walk" my neighbour is making (with mainly his neighbour's (my!) surplus plants) - but when the flowers opened they  just seemed to grow in size by the day and were very appealing
 so it was taken out of the group  that went  next door.

My garden has changed so much the last few years as trees loose lower branches and the shade becomes less - so I end up with less space for big clumps.

Regards

Hi Rena,

It is sad that we do not post more often. :-[  I will try to rectify this!!

It is true that garden clivias are usually much happier than those in pots! Your plants are prime examples how beautiful clivias in a garden can look!

Hello Abby and Aletta

Thanks on behalf of my clivia - they do all the hard work....

Maybe the upcoming clivia season will prod some members into posting..... :)

All I have in bloom at the moment is one interspecific and one miniata - but my computer has been "revamped" and I am still trying to find out how to upload photos.........

Abby - apparently my computer system was hopelessly outdated - so it was revamped with windows 10 etc and all my photos loaded onto FastStone - so I'm still finding my way around it - but at least I got my test photo on GF ;D

I am still on XP ...with which I am happy with but they do say I need to do something soon as it is without support now.

Must investigate  FastStone

Did you get all your pix from Photobucket or did you loose them ?
Apparently after a period of time not using PB the photos dissappear off this site ??? ... that is what I read anyhow.
