Gloriosa superba is a striking plant, and the only climbing lily in existence.

I had one for quite a few years and many shared tubers. Not sure what happened to it but it died out. I wish it were invasive here but didn't know it could be harmful. Thanks for the info.

Just ordered a a half dozen tubers of this for a couple of containers to put in the sun garden. Hopefully they will do well.

I saw one blooming profusely, must have been 50 flowers. It was climbing around in a bush.

Dutch Lady, I'm starting one of these in a pot in my sunroom. I plan to take it outdoors in the next week. If I keep it indoors as a houseplant, will it bloom longer? Does it have a resting period?

I really love my Gloriosa. Lovey dubby


I was just sitting here enjoying the company, plants have a lot to say if you just take the time to listen.
