Gloriosa Superba: The flame lily - early bloom

This photo was taken in my neighbour garden in Bengkulu Indonesia. This flower is called flame lily, or many other good names as glory lily, flame of the woods, climbing lily, superb lily etc. After the flower bud blooms, the color of the flame lily is so contrast, yelow at the bottom and reddish orange at the top. The yellow color eventually will turn to orange color after a day or two so that the flower will looks really like fire flame as you can see here. After that all the color will turn to red then the blooms end.
