Jane:
I have a number of Clivias that I've had for years.
I keep them on the floor of a cold greenhouse at around 45-50 during our NE winters.
They go on a unheated porch in summers to get early morning light.
They grow as under story plants with no direct sunlight which can burn them.
Found this out the hard way.
I keep them absolutely dry from September until spring.
Get them to flower on occasion but not every year.
Couple of images attached

Could you grow Clivias in a cold greenhouse? I think they have to get a 
little bit below 50 F in winter, and you might have to put the pots 
outdoors for some of the summer, but the flowers are typically 
brightly-colored, and the foliage looks lusher than that of many bulbs.
