THE Eastern Cape Clivia Club will hold a Mini Interspecific show on July 23.

The Clivia, known as the interspecific, is a cross between a Miniata and any of the following species: Nobilis, Gardenii, Robusta, Caulescense or Mirabilis.

This hybridization has led to a plant that can flower at any time of the year, but generally seems to prefer mid-winter.

The hybrids are generally larger than the parents and have flaring flowers in all colours.

Everyone who would like to see these fascinating species or would like to own one is welcome at the show.

The show will be followed by an open meeting and everyone is welcome to join the club and get involved with these captivating plants.

The hybrids and other species will be for sale at the show at a reasonable price.

There will be experts available for advice on growing the plants.

The show will run from 10 am to 2pm on July 23 at the Sherwood Garden Centre in Port Elizabeth.

Entry is free of charge.
