Friday I’m in Love: Clivias

This plant was new to me before coming to California but the camellia collection at Descanso Gardens is underplanted with a mass of them and they are spectacular. They are very expensive and I thought them out of my reach, but my gardener has a source…and voila! 

Clivias in the "woodland garden"Instant sunshine, even in the shady corners…
