Wa­ter­wise plant of the month

Home (South Africa) - - GARDENS -

Clump-form­ing Clivia gar­denii is a lovely plant for shady gar­dens. It bears trum­pet-shaped, pen­du­lous orange flow­ers with petals tipped with green. Its au­tumn blooms are fol­lowed by bright red berries that are rel­ished by birds. The fleshy roots store wa­ter, mak­ing it a use­ful wa­ter­wise plant. Grow in well-com­posted soil.
