Coming up clivias

Popped out to the Clivia Display at Te Puna Quarry Park this afternoon Рjust the tonic for a grey day that ranged between drizzle and wind-blown downpours! And for anyone who thinks clivias come only in orange, the breeding work of  Ian Duncalf of Te Puna and Jude Coenen of Apata might surprise you.
