Clivia Home Page

Clivia is a genus in the Amaryllis Family (Amaryllidaceae) characterized by having evergreen foliage and no bulbs. The roots are heavy and ropey, reminiscent of the roots of many orchids. The thick, absorbant covering of the roots is like the velum covering on orchid roots.

Visit Our Nursery and Greenhouse

During the Clivia Bloom Season in March

and During Daylily Season in July

The Garden is located in Westfield, Indiana, about 25 miles north of downtown Indianapolis [click here for regional map]. To visit us, follow state road 32 east from the intersection with US 31 at Westfield for 1.5 miles to Grassy Branch Road. There is a traffic signal at the intersection. Follow Grassy Branch north for about 1/4 mile. The gardens are on the west side of the road, at 17808 (house number is on the mailbox at the roadside). [click here for local map.]

Visits by appointment only. Our peak Clivia bloom season is usually in March. Our iris collection blooms mostly in May. Our peak daylily bloom season is usually late June and early and mid July. Since we are looking for extra-early and very late blooming varieties of daylilies, you can expect to see some daylilies in bloom from mid-May through mid-September.
