Care and Culture of Clivias

Welcome to the discussion of caring for clivias around the world. Since conditions may vary according to where you live, there are comments from more than one geographical location. In mild climates, clivias are outdoor plants, grown in the garden or for landscaping. They can tolerate a little frost, but not hard freezes. They are very tolerant of drought, but not of bright sunlight.

In cold climates, they are houseplants in the colder months, and potentially for all twelve months of the year. Nevertheless, they do quite well outdoors in summer; you just have to give them some shade.
