  • Common Name: Clivia (Kaffir Lily, Bush Lily)
  • Latin Name: Clivia
  • Family Name: Amaryllidaceae
This handsome plant with its beautiful tube-like flowers grows from rhizomes and is native to South Africa.  

It contains lycorine and other alkaloids which, if eaten in quantity, have been known to cause vomiting, diarrhoea, low blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias in some mammals such as cats and dogs, so it would be unwise to allow tortoises to eat any part of it.
