Mich würde interessieren, ob jemand Erfahrungen mit dieser interspezifischen Hybride hat. Auch Saatgut-Quellen zu kennen, wäre nicht schlecht.

Viele Grüße Hortus

Hallo Hortus,

das Bild habe ich im Clivia Forum gefunden

C x nimbicola [C. miniata x C caulescens or perhaps vice versa]

nach einer Samenquelle muß ich noch suchen.


Liebe Grüße

Dweller in the mist
Clivia x nimbicola - natural
hybrid in the genus Clivia
Artist - Magda Nel (UP)
The epithet nimbicola means 'dweller in the
mist', and refers to the mist belt habitat in
which this hybrid and its putative parents are
found. Clivia x nimbicola is intermediate between
Clivia caulescens and Clivia miniata with regards
to rhizome, leaf, umbel and flower morphology.
Flower colour ranges from pastel orange to pastel
pink, with green tepal apices in some specimens.
Flowering is erratic, occurring all year round, mainly
from July through to December, with some
specimens flowering twice yearly-February to
May. This long flowering period connects the
flowering periods of the two putative parents in
the Bearded Man Mountain locality, namely October-
November in C. miniata and October-December
in C. caulescens. The extended flowering period
of C. x nimbicola is regarded as further evidence
in support of the taxon's hybrid origin. The formal
description of C. x nimbicola is also supported by
the observation that the hybrid plants bear berries
in the wild, thereby inferring fertility and the
possibility to maintain populations by means of
subsequent breeding among hybrid plants.
The holotype of Clivia x nimbicola was collected
on the Bearded Man Mountain near Barberton,
on the border between South Africa and Swaziland.
In this area these natural hybrids are quite
common (50 or more individuals) in sympatric
stands of C. miniata and C. caulescens. Judging
by plant sizes and the height of aerial stems, original
hybrids are as old as their putative parents.
Toppled plants with long aerial stems, from either
parentage of hybrid, freely produce suckers when
in contact with the soil. Seedlings, when present,
were usually distributed around its putative
parent. The natural distribution range of C. x
nimbicola is confined to the Barberton Centre of
Endemism, the only known region in which the
distribution ranges of C. caulescens and C.
miniata overlap. &

Danke Christine
für den ausführlichen Aufsatz. Einige Detailes hatte ich schon bei Shieldsgardens.com gefunden.
Hier in D scheint wohl die Pflanze noch nicht angekommen zu sein.

Viele Grüße
Hortus
