    Detailed Description

    In response to our customers asking, "Are there more varieties of these wild, fun vines?", we set out on a search. And discovered that Carsonii, a chocolate purple and lemon yellow variety is also grown by the farmer in India who grows our other gloriosa lilies. This type is rare, but not any more challenging to grow than the others, which are easy. Perennials in warm areas, these colorful vines enliven fences, trellises and lattice dividers. The foliage is glossy, bright green and oval with tips that often form tendrils.
