Gardeners' Notes:

Positive revlar On Oct 3, 2009, revlar from Brooksville, FL (Zone 9b) wrote:

Variegated Clivia was one of Joe Solomone's specialties. Internationally known for his hybridizing of Clivia in California he produced many named plants that influenced the Clivia breeding programs of numerous growers. After years of doing what he loved, gardening, Mr. Solomone passed away in the spring of 2008.

Note: All Clivia foliage will burn in direct sun so they should be grown in shady conditions. This variety likes even more shade than the solid green leaf variety.
