Family: Colchicaceae
Scientific name: Gloriosa lutea
Common name: Yellow Gloriosa lily
Origin: South Africa

The gloriosa lily is a small perennial climber (max. 2 meters) with - graceful, lemon-yellow flowers. The species is native to South Africa, but is now cultivated worldwide for its unusual flowers. The plant grows from a tuber and dies in fall from above the ground. 

During winter, it is best that you dig up the tuber and let it overwinter at a cool place. At the end of the winter you can put it in the soil again, so it will quickly grow again.

Sowing description: First soak the seeds in lukewarm water for 24/48 hours. Then sow them in sowing mix at a depth of about 1 cm. Keep the soil constantly moist and put the whole on a bright and warm spot. 

Sowing time: December - July
Difficulty: Intermediate
Minimum temperature: -5 degrees Celsius

Van alle zaden is er helaas niets opgekomen. Alles gedaan volgens de richtlijnen. Ze zitten al 2 maanden in zaaigrond met plastic zakje erover. Jammer
