Clivia miniata var. citrina

Years ago, the rare yellow-flowering Kafir Lily (Clivia) sold for a princely sum of $300 USD. Today, they can be bought for a couple of bubble gum wrappers.









Chamaerops humilis, European Fan Palm

    I can't wait to have roses in bloom here!

  7. The yellow Clivia is very stunning and the fan palm flower interesting. Love the delicate, snow white roses.
    You mention how expensive the yellow Clivia were. It is the same with the newest Daylilies. I always buy them from earlier years. They come down considerably in price.
