Gloriosa Lilies, clilmbing tender geophytes from South Africa

These are so over the top they make me self conscious. This giant planting is to the left of the entry walk to the Administration Building at the USNA. Gloriosa Lilies aren't dependably hardy here (in DC in Zone7) or at least they weren't until recently. This is quite a sheltered location and this planting has been getting larger and larger for years. It's quite something.
