Gloriosa Supurba (Glory Lily)

  I posted, in 2010, about the Glory Lily tubers 
a sweet friend gave me.

I took the photos below on August 11, 2011
and obviously did not create a post!

You might note that I placed them in a shady-with-bright-light-spot.  They grew tall and only bore one flower.

 Notice the leaf tips.  :-)

On June 24 I took the following couple of photos...
 Look at that.... a PINK one!  :-)

And yesterday... a good variety!  :-)

I hope you enjoy the 4th of July - with a few "Sparklers" of your own!!  :-)
Nothing "shady" here!  lol

Happy 4th to you. Love that lily will have to add it to my wish list! The leaves are so interesting.

Greetings to Rosemary, "Gardener," and Darla. Thanks for leaving a comment. Truly these are very special. I bring the potted corms indoors after the first frost and leave in the basement over the winter (no water).

I love those curly leaf tips.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi! I do, too. The plants don't really climb, but those little tips do hang on to the trellis (and each other!). :-)

So they didn't bloom well in the bright shade?? It looks like they are in sun now?? I SO want to try these again.
