Gloriosa aftercare

This question was asked by
Vivien H

How do I prepare my gloriosa for winter. They’ve been lovely, & are still green. Do I stop watering now or will they die back themselves?
Thanks,
Vivien

After your Gloriosa has finished flowering for the season, leave the foliage in place; don’t cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulb for the future.
Leaves and stalks may be removed when they yellow.
Gloriosa Lily Bulbs don’t like to get too cold, therefore if the temperature drops to -7 degrees, you’ll need to lift Gloriosa lily bulbs and store them indoors in ever so slightly damp peat moss. Or you can just replace them next spring for another year of winged blooms.
Your Gloriosa lilies will rest for a few months before beginning the next growing cycle in the spring/summer.
Don’t water while the tuber is dormant.
