Gloriosa Rothschildiana Lily

 also know as Climbing Lily, Southern Beauty Lily and Flame Lily. 
These plants can be found in old gardens through out the South.

Sunday while doing pictures for a friend I happened
 upon this one and quickly took some pictures to share

it is a vining  plant that will grow up to 5 feet high.
Notice that the tips of the leaves actually turn into little tentacles
 at the ends and twine onto anything that they can.

it's a beauty and I need to find one for myself.. 
 I say that every year..
and I can't believe it's June already!
 Hope each of you are having a great week I will be joining
 for her weekly garden party tomorrow
so come on back and join us..
 hugs, Cherry

  9. This is a nice vine and I should think all the red would attract hummingbirds.
