Gloriosa lutea is a tendril climber boasting vibrant lemon-yellow flowers with dramatically forward-reaching stamens and swept-back ruffled petals blooming for up to six weeks in mid-summer. From the tip of each glossy leaf sprouts a long green tendril that twirls out to grasp whatever is nearby spinning itself around it. Provide a trellis or wire or string to encourage climbing. Gloriosa lutea grows up to 5 ft. high, thrives in full sun or partial shade. Cut down top growth as it dies back after flowering. As a bonus, it is deer and rabbit resistant!
