The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Clivia miniata - sometimes known as Kaffir Lilly - is shade loving perennial originating from South Africa. Its tolerant of dry periods and pretty much will look after itself once established. Over time, large clumps will form. These can be divided and transplanted with ease during the cooler months.
