Hi all, Had these photos for a while now. These are my flame lilies (Gloriosa superba), 3 years on from seed they are now starting to flower. The flowers are gorgeous but otherwise the plant is a really nasty piece of work. I don't recall the parent plants having the white streaking in the flowers and think this might an artifact of growing them here in Iowa instead of Cape Town, South Africa. Frm 4 tiny seedlings they have now taken over the pot and I will have to thin them out next year. These have been in flower since late July. These are more of sentimental value than horticultural (I see there are many more exotic cultivars out there), a reminder of my aunt that passed last year.
