This Clivia was taken yesterday around lunchtime when the sun was shining brightly on it. I could not resist and had to take some photos (f13 1/80sec / natural light from window / no flash).
"Clivia is a genus of monocot flowering plants native to southern Africa. They are from the family Amaryllidaceae. Common name is Bush lily.
They are non-woody evergreen plant, with dark green, strap-like leaves. These leaves produce clusters bell-shaped flowers on a stalk above the foliage. The flowers somewhat resemble those of certain varieties of Lilium or Amaryllis. Orange is the most common colour but there are also Peach, Near White, Apricot, Red and Yellow varieties." (Wikipedia)
