 Hi Tom
I took a bunch of the pale yellow bloomed stems to a garden club meeting last year, and few people knew what they were. I think the  colour intensity is very dependent on light and temperature levels. They are woodland floor plants when I have seen them near Pietermaritzberg. Is the yellow plant attached to your others or a separate plant that has not flowered for you before?

  Hi Tom,What happened is a mutation and it is what all plant breeders hope and strive for. Mostly they are negative, some very negative but rarely they are positive. You are one of the lucky ones, it could be worth a lot, cherish it.Best of luckColin

 My clump of Clivia miniata has been growing undisturbed for a few years. I
have been planning to divide and transplant the plants when the common
orange blossoms fade. Then, near-white blossoms appeared along side the
usual orange blossoms. I assume they are actually very pale yellow.I had
not planted a hybrid Clivia, so the these new blossoms are unexpected and
puzzling. How could this have happened?
