This yellow flame lily or glory lily (Gloriosa ‘Lutea’) is a little smaller than its bright red brother, Rothschildiana. The Gloriosa is native to the central and the southern part of Africa. When given enough water and warmth, this Gloriosa can grow up to 1,5m. This flame lily can be planted in a pot in the living room or on the terrace. After this glory lily made a climb it will delight you with beautiful flowers. If you water the gloriosa regularly they will last a long time.
Because the Gloriosa is not hardy, it is best planted in a pot. Plant them in a large pot nose up in May and cover them with a 5 cm soil mixture of compost, lawn soil, peat and sand. Place the pot in a light, sheltered spot. She likes to grow in moist soil that dries out in between. Plant them carefully because each tuber has only one growing point. In a sunny conservatory, where the temperature does not drop below 15 ° C all year round, they can be planted in open ground.
