Gloriosa Rothschildiana

Gloriosa Rothschildiana

OUT OF STOCK
Also known as Climbing Lily and Flame Lily, the Gloriosa Rothschildiana is probably best known as the Glory Lily. This aptly named flower is strange and exotic looking, boasting 4-5 inch blooms with wavy-edged petals that face downwards in bud, but grow to reflex backwards, as though blown back by a strong wind. Ruby red petals with yellow bases and edges look as though these flowers are on fire, and would be perfect for hot themed gardens or for gardens that need some unique character. The bright green stamens and pistil are extremely prominent, with trailing sturdy stems and lush green leaves tipped with tendrils to aid in climbing. As a native of South Africa, the Glory Lily grows fast-growing vines and can climb up to 8ft on a fence or trellis in warm weather. The Glory Lily can even be grown in conservatories, providing a one-of-a-kind centrepiece. If you are planting outdoors, why not team with other exotic summer-flowering plants like Eucomis, Tiger Flowers and Calla Lily, for your own South African resort. 10/15cm Bulbs supplied. Flowers June to August. Height 1.5m.
