Bucky, the next plant I have in mind is the Flame lilly. Do you have any information on this? Is it a protected plant, indigenous and can I buy it at the KNP nursery or any other nursery. Is there a special way to grow this plant?

I think the the creeper flame lily is Gloriosa superba. There is some advice on how to grow it on PlantZAfrica. It is extremely poisonous, so not a good choice for the garden if you have small kids.

It is the Gloriosa Superba I had in mind - thanks for the information - i agree it is maybe not a good choice for my garden.

Bucky

Thanks to you as well - maybe I must rather consider the flame lillies you included in your post!

I was reading Gloriosa -flame lily- thread and went to PlantzAfrica site as suggested by Restio.
It has wonderful info on trees written for the layman by experts from the botanical gardens! :clap: :clap:
