Do you want to try something new in your garden to make your garden special and attractive? If your yard is full of green plants, maybe you can have a try to grow some outdoor flowers in order to make your garden fulfill.
Since you may think roses are a little too normal for your garden, how about try a special flower: Clivia. In fact, this type of clivia is not the type you think it is, this kind of clivia gets its own special color and the flower is more dedicated than the usual clivia. Yes, here is the one type I want to recommend you: blue clivia. Also, it belongs to Agapanthus Africanus. You can also call her African lily. This kind of follower is a native of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. She has the beautiful blue delicate follower which enchants you. If you really want your garden more romantic, it also gets the purple color.
These two colors are very match for each other, as purple shows elegance and blue shows the fragile beauty. However, cultivating agapanthus africanus is a challenge for you. As Africa lily requires more care and patience than normal clivia. She is strict with soil and like warm and humid climate, 15-28 degrees is the best growth temperature for her. So, you need to control the temperature. Once the temperate exceeds the scope, you need to take measure to keep her alive. In fact, blue lily is not that weak as you think, she can survive safely when the temperature is about 5 ℃. As for the soil, you can cultivate her in the fertile, more humus, well-drained soil.
Autumn is also a good season for you to grow cilvia, so prepare your favorite clivia seeds and have a shot. You’d better pay attention for her health. Fertilization is needed once every 2 weeks, and also, it grow slowly, about 15 days sprout after sowing, and the blooming time may take 2 years.
