Gloriosa | The Flame Lily

This question was asked by

I have just bought 3 bulbs from your stall at Tatton Flower Show. I think I was told that I could plant them now, but looking on your website it says Spring. I am puzzled. Please advise. Thank you.

Hi Hilary

Yes plant them now as advised and they will flower this year still – just a little a later as they’ve been held back in Coldstore.

They will then revert back to their usual flowering cycle next year.

Be careful not to knock your gloriosa rhizomes as they can be stubborn to get going if they are knocked at all.
