The Flame Lily (Groriosa) is one of natures wonders it is it is a spider like upside down flower from Zimbabwe former Rhodesia. You may see them in South Africa in gardens during the rainy season but it is not a South African plant. My parents had them in there garden for meany years and stile have and so I get hold of them for my garden to. BUT BE WORN the plant is dangerously toxic and avoid handling it's toots. This beautiful flower is green and turn yellow then orange and read there after it forms small hard black seed. The hole plant day in winter and dissipate butt it potato-like roots stay alive for the next raining season. Admire them when you see them but do not touch them or spread there seeds it can become a pest in other contrary's.
