Description

Transform your patio seating area into a tranquil, secluded tropical hideaway with Gloriosa 'Tomas De Bruyne', possibly one of the most spectacular climbers for covering trellis and pergolas, creating colour and privacy for your patio as well as providing summer long floral delight. This vigorous tropical climber bursts into bloom from midsummer through to autumn with truly astonishing large flowers with long, curvy red petals each edged with a thick margin of sunny yellow. It’s a heavenly ready-made colour contrast with exceptional flower detail which is sure to wow you and your guests through the summer months!

Grow Gloriosa 'Tomas De Bruyne' against trellis, garden arches or pergolas and it will quickly start to cling and climb to the support as soon as the summer weather begins to kick in. Gloriosa is a fast-growing annual climber for summer interest in sunny garden areas, but it can also be grown as a long-living plant in a conservatory or ornamental greenhouse.
