|Can anyone recommend an internet source for Gloriosa Lily?|

|Dave, I got mine originally from McLure & Zimmerman www.mzbulb.com 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/prod... 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.|
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
