I see Ron's imaginary dollar and raise him 10 imaginary cents.


(plus i'd be shocked if walmart even carried clivias)
LMAO LOL too funny! You may be right about Walmart and not carrying this one. I have yet to see Walmart label anything correctly anyways when it comes to bulbs.

I am so glad we are not playing Strip Poker! :lol: I fear it might get a bit chilly! LOL

The persective on your pic is MUCH better than the link I posted earlier--I really wanted to see SIZE of the flower. How unusual to have a cluster of tiny, delicate flowers. I grow yellow daylillies, and common tiger lillies--they are HUGE by comparison.

first I would like to say

WALMART palnt section :barnie :he
It makes me insane.
poor lighting, to hot ~ to cold, employees who are clueless and dont give a ripe fig if the plants have water, pests or disease.
Pale leaves, washed out flowers,dead branches are Normal for the store.
I have the same issues with the Chain Super Markets around our area.
sell sell sell.

The Plant your showing looks like the Clivia that I have. pretty foliage and stunning yellow flowers.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to get my hands on a Blue yet.
seems yellow is popular for our area.

Up here in the cold we bring them inside to winter over, last year I lost track of where it was and hubby did the normal bury the flower garden in rabbit cleanings.

This mid spring there was something green poking out of the garden and I was a bit more than baffled as to what it could be.
never given a thought to the misplaced Clivia plant.
I waited it out and watched it grow up out of the now composted soil and low and behold it was my errant Clivia.
It had leaves that were paler than normal and came up in the same fanning as posted , thinking it had something to do with the poor lighting or from over fertilizing? but went on to produce a beautiful cluster of flowers.
I told my husband just before our first frost to bury it deep in the rabbit cleanings again this year, I wanted to see if it was a fluke or will it survived the -20 we sometimes get again this year. if it does I will be sure to get pictures this time.

I must agree about Walworld.

I only look at there clearance plants. As you said they are all in rough shape, they should all be on the clearance rack! You say clueless, that is giving them a little to much credit!

I am glad your Clivia survived the winter for you. -20 wow that would kill me!
This is me at like 60
