Glory Lilly (නියඟලා) (DSC_0811)

Glory Lilly (Gloriosa superba) (නියඟලා) is a species of flowering plant in the family Colchicaceae. This species is a perennial herb growing from a fleshy rhizome. The showy flower is generally bright red to orange at maturity, sometimes with yellowish bases. The leaves are mainly alternately and are somewhat lance-shaped, tipped with tendrils. This plant is poisonous, toxic enough to cause human and animal fatalities. The alkaloid-rich plant has long been used as a traditional medicine in many cultures.
