Climbing Lily Flower
This is my second year growing these plants and two of them have just started to bloom in the container garden. Last year I planted one of the tubers in the ground and cut it when I was going to pull it up at the end of summer, I decided to plant them in containers this year to minimize the chance of damaging them when I lift them.
One of the common names for this plant is 'Climbing Lily' because the leaves have tendrils at the end that helps it attach itself for support as it grows. Like Morning Glories these tendrils will attach themselves to anything so make sure to stake them or grow them against something for support because the stems are weak.
These exotic flowers can also double as a houseplant if grown in bright light but will look a little ugly when the tubers go into dormancy. But care should be taken if growing this plant indoor or outdoors because all plants are toxic and even handling the tubers can cause your skin to get irritated.
If you want to see the tubers you can see my previous entry on this plant titled:
