Blushes

Here we will show case all the flowers with similar blush colouring. Although they do not all fall within the same breeding, they do have similar colouring.

Clivia “Apple Blossom”. The Apple Blossom strain, comprising eight plants code-named Q1-Q8, was found scattered among a wild population of orange-flowering Clivia miniata with some Clivia nobilis all flowering at the same time. What is so special about them is that they all have differing yellow, suffused with pink, flowers, which is not common in clivias. Their seed is abnormally large and the seedlings grow slowly. The “Apple Blossom” strain is highly sought-after by clivia enthusiasts.

Chinese Blush Clivias:

 These are mostly imported over the years from breeders in China. They are squat, semi to broad leaf yellow with pink blush. Some are near white with pink blush. They are truly beautiful and we have been using them in our breeding program with other blushes and should see the results in the next season or two.
