Clivia robusta looks like a giant form of Clivia gardenii. It has extended stems which can reach a height of 1.5 metres. They have larger flower heads than Clivia gardenii and make an interesting feature plant in a shady area in the garden or in your Clivia collection.
Characteristically it grows in swampy conditions in semi-shade and also in shallow river-beds.
The flower-heads are tall and large, and bear pendant flowers from yellow to red in colour. It is possible to grow this plant in a garden pond. It would be best to submerge the container in shallow water.
Clivia robusta, also known as the “Swamp Clivia” is easy to grow under the same conditions as normal Clivias.
