Gloriosa Growing Instructions

Gloriosa

Gloriosa Rothschildiana, also known as the Climbing Flame lily, is a Georgeous Tropical lily that will climb up anything you put in front of it! Its beautiful flowers will begin popping out in December (earlier in Warm climates), and will stay out for a month or longer. Gloriosa like to climb up fences, plants, stakes, or anything you want really- they will reach around 1m in height. Each Tuber will send up 2 growing points, and will have up to 30 flowers each point…. these are a stunning addition to any garden! These can be planted anytime from now until end of December.
First things first- you need to find a nice, sunny spot in your garden with good drainage… ensuring that it’s in an area for all to see!
Loosen the soil to a depth of 15cm, and plant the 2 legged Tubers flat – cover your Tubers with around 10cm of soil.
Tubers love to be fertilized, so a handful of general purpose fertilizer is advised, but not always neccesary. Do remember, that the more you pamper your Tubers, the better your blooms will be!
Gloriosa Lilies are a climbing Lily, and will require something to grow up or over- staking will work perfectly, or simply let it grow up a nearby plant.
You will have blooming spectacular flowers for years to come… ENJOY!!
