Gloriosa or flame lily seed questions
I have several green pods on my gloriosa lily and they've started turning brown and busting open to reveal the little red berries inside. Are the seeds viable,... and when are they ripe for picking,... and when/what's the best way to sow them? Thanks for any info.
This particular lily (with the red berries) is one that was left behind last fall when I dug them up and it survived last winter, bloomed a lot earlier and more than the ones I replanted this spring. I know we had a really mild winter, but that late freeze we had didn't even bother it. Since I have others I can dig I'm going to mulch it good (it's in a black plastic 1/2 barrel) and try to winter it there again. The only thing I can figure is it was the extra mild winter and maybe the black plastic kept it warmer than usual.
