Gloriosa is a genus of five or six species in the plant family Colchicaceae, from tropical Africa and Asia. They are tender, tuberous rooted deciduous perennials, adapted to summer rainfall with a dormant dry season.
Their native range is Africa, Southeastern Asia and parts of Malaysia, but they are now widely cultivated.
Nice looking flowers. Looks like a picture of burning flame.
