Bush lily, Green-tip forest lily (Eng.), Boslelie (Afr.)
Clivia nobilis was the first Clivia that was discovered and named and as such this can really be considered to be the "type species" of the genus. The rate of growth of C. nobilis is considerably slower than all of the other Clivia species and it requires very little water to survive. Under favourable conditions, this species is a long-lived plant and will outlive many generations. Look at the flowers closely and you will see how truly exquisite they are.
