When Will My Gloriosa Lily Bloom and How Long

When will my Gloriosa lily bloom and how long will they stay in bloom? I will be moving in June and was wanting to take some of the seeds from my Gloriosa lilies but I’m not sure when they will bloom and how long before I get seed from it.

The bloom time for gloriosa lilies is mid-late summer.

Since you are moving in June, however, gathering seed will not be an option for you. While it is not recommended to move the tubers of the lily unless it is dormant, sometimes we are not given a choice. This article will give you insight on how to move your lily to its new home:

When should you remove the bulb of the gloriosa lily from the ground and store it during the winter?

After the frost has killed off the vine, you can lift the tubers to store.

How to transplant them? I discovered a couple in the yard of the place I am renting. Without any effort on my part they have increased over the years. However, mostly they climb up a bottle brush tree. I have tried steering them to a trellis, but they keep popping up all over the area.

You'll want to wait until next spring to transplant them, and all you have to do is make sure you dig up as much of the tubers as possible, otherwise they'll keep coming back in the same spot.

I broke the above ground vine of a gloriosa lily. Will it come back? What can I do to encourage it along?

Since they are growing from tubers they will likely start sprouting again.

My research resulted in many different experiences with this vine, some coming back vigorously right away and other plants sulking and taking many months to recover.
