Gloriosa (Gloriosa Lily)
Sophisticated, sometimes outrageous yet extremely easy to grow! Gloriosa Lilies are tuberous, tropical vines that perfectly fit this description. These high-fashion florist’s flowers are known for their magnificent flowers with dramatically forward-reaching stamens and swept-back, ruffled petals so that the flowers appear to be moving forward at high speed. Borne in the upper leaf axils of long, spindly stems, the flowers bloom from late spring through fall then turn into wacky-looking ribbed seed pods. Enjoy a spectacular and colorful show by adding a Gloriosa Lily near the patio or entrance to the home.
