GLORIOSA LILY LUTEA Rare Flame Lily

seedling of Gloriousa Lily Lutea also know as Climbing Lily or Flame Lily. A very rare find is this golden yellow variety. A vining type plant that will grow up to 5 feet high if you give it something to climb on. Very unusual in that the tips of the leaves actually turn into little tentacles at the ends and twine onto anything that they can. Each plant produces between 3 and 9 blossoms at a time. At least 6 hours of sunshine a day is required to get the best blooms. Fairly drought tolerant and pretty much carefree and pest free when finally established. Hardy to zone 8 and 9, will die back to the ground with extended cold temperatures but will grow right back in the spring. I have had good luck with both planting in the ground and in containers in my zone 8b area. Can be dug up in colder areas and stored in peat moss over the winter. Do not let dry out during the six to eight week resting period, just keep moist not wet. Plant flat two to three inches below the surface. The tubers will double each year if you do not cut the flowers before they have faded
