Gloriosa Lily

I love this plant. It’s so strange looking. The ends of the leaves turn into little tendrils that wrap around things as it climbs.

And it’s been so tenacious. One year the pot flooded during the winter. The drain hold clogged and there was four inches of standing water in the pot. The next year the drip irrigator got pulled out of the pot during the height of summer. The above ground part of the plant withered and died. This year it’s had about ten blossoms. I think I need a few more of these.
