Clivia plant in bloom

ImageClivia is a plant native to the forests of South Africa.  In the wild, the roots grow just under the surface of the soil. By doing this, they can find plenty of water and also get good airflow.  It is a popular houseplant because of the beautiful orange blooms.  As you can see, there are plenty of buds ready to open, so you should have some time to see this plant in bloom at the Miller Nature Preserve Conservatory in Avon.  Hours are 10 am – 6 pm daily.
