Grown for us by a farmer in India, these yellow gloriosa lilies are difficult to find in the U.S. and are delightful perennials for warm weather gardeners. Known for their ability to grow many feet in a single season, these vines are outstanding for covering lattice or growing through other plants. Foliage is glossy, bright green and oval with tips that often form tendrils. Excellent for brightening sunrooms or greenhouses.
Plant tubers horizontally, 2-4" deep
Water lightly until top growth forms, then regularly during active growth.
