Description

If more muted tones are your cup of tea, this effortlessly spectacular new climber Gloriosa 'Lime' exudes the tropical vibe in the most perfect, cool and calming way. Throughout summer, this generously prolific 'Flame Lily' produces masses of large pale green goblet-shaped flowers with long, elegant wavy petals, each marked with a little flash of pink on the reverse for that hint of colour and contrast. This chilled out combination of pale green blooms against lush green foliage makes for a calmly co-ordinated and sophisticated look.

Quickly scrambling up trellis or pergolas to form a beautiful screen, this fast-growing annual climber brings summer-long interest to the garden lasting from mid-summer right through to the first frosts. Perfect for planting in a container or border on a sunny patio, but also suitable for indoor growing – if you have a conservatory which could do with a bit of greenery, Gloriosa 'Lime' will happily fit the bill!
