Gloriosa superba from Scott in SC

In a garden in Columbia, SC I’m mostly sun area. Growing through holly hedges about 5’ high. Looks like a lily hanging from the stem. Yellow to pink petals approximately 3” long. Green leaves 6-10” long

Hi Scott,

this is the gloriosa or flame lily, Gloriosa superba.
