Clivia Classiques has been in existence since 2003 when Harry Erasmus brought his core collection from South Africa and went into partnership with Paul Kay at Forrestdale Garden Centre with the ambition to produce a range of Clivia colours never before seen in Australia.
This year sees the culmination of that effort with high expectations of a magnificent range of plants flowering in August/September.
Sadly, pressure of work has curtailed Harry's activities with Clivia Classiques but he remains a good friend and enthusiast.
Plants can be purchased all year from Forrestdale Garden Centre but with the large volume available we have a great range available to the wholesaler and landscaper.
Since Clivias thrive under trees in dry shady conditions, we also offer a range of deciduous trees suitable for Perth conditions and whatever the size of your garden.
Clivias are shade loving plants which thrive in our dry summers and grow well under trees, patios and in those south facing areas that never see the sun. They enjoy water in the winter but only once or twice a month in summer! Surely the forgetful gardener's dream!
Forrestdale Garden Centre is open 6 days a week and offers a wide range of deciduous trees and ornamentals, and best of all can advise you on what to plant where and how to keep it alive!
Many landscapers are finding this an ideal plant for shady areas with limited water so Clivia lovers should see them popping up in unexpected places in the future. However, the more unusual colours are still in limited supply - and are still surprising us!
