Dave, I got mine originally from McLure & Zimmerman [url=www.mzbulb.com]www.mzbulb.com[/url] But I just went to their site to check and it seems they've sold out of the red/yellow one (Gloriosa rothschildiana). They do still have the all-yellow flowered ones, and interestingly, a purple one that I've never noticed before. (may have to try it!)

They're pretty commonly available, and I've even seen them in net bags at the big box store a few times. Even Van Bourgondien has them listed, and pretty inexpensive, too, but I haven't been too pleased with their bulbs when it's late in the season like this. http://www.dutchbulbs.com/product/Red-Climbing-Lily/Other-Fl... IF you order from them, the bulbs should be white or light colored, fleshy and firm. Don't accept them if they're soft or brown.

Dave, you may want to check with @jmorth because he sometimes sells his extras around this time of year.

I had thought about ordering some from him last year, but life happened and I didn't.
You can see the pics of his plants and the tubers on this thread:

Fyi we ordered from Van Bourgondien recently at work and their bulbs are all coming up. And yes, they were very reasonable.

Brent & Becky's bulbs also has them & I hear nothing but good things about Brent & Becky's.

Just ordered a half dozen from Brent & Becky's bulbs. Thanks to all for the information.
