Dear Friend,
            I saw coloured pictures of Clivia in books.This is a bulbus plant of African origin.I was on a trip to Shilong in 2002.There I saw the plant in bloom.I collected some bulbs and put them in a pot.The plants survived but there were no flowers.We got the first flowers from our Clivia plants in 2008.In 2010 I observed with surprise that Sunbirds visit the flowers in search of nectar.Attaching an image in which Female of a Purple Sunbird is on the flower of Clivia.I learn everyday from nature.
You may like the image.
Regards

Sorry but your plant is absolutely not a Clivia. The flowers are of
the wrong shape and Clivia is never bulbous so you can collect bulbs.
They are evergreen with an appearance of a fat leek.

A reply:
"Definitely it is Crocosmia Sp (Family: Iridaceae). It is an exotic plant common in Shillong gardens as well as in wild as escapes.
Manas Bhaumik"
Thanks a lot, Dr. Bhaumik.

"The plant is available in our Manipur State:  like Crocosmia aures (Pappe ex J.D. Hooker) Planchon, however, the photo may be a hybrid Crocosmia Jackanapes.
