Gloriosa Lily

This stunning flower literally means “full of Glory” which it certainly is. Not a common commercially grown flower it is a vibrant and exotic bloom. The Gloriosa is the national flower of Zimbabwe and is also widely grown in India and South Africa and is said to have medicinal qualities. This bright red and yellow bloom is a herb which has small tendrils to help it climb up to four metres long.¬† As a floral designer I love the Gloriosa which is a beautiful and slightly unusual bloom to add interest to an arrangement. They are not available all the time as they are an imported flower not generally grown here in Australia so best to call us a t Blackwood Florist and order in advance and we can try to source this rare beauty for your next special event.
