In Season: Icy Hot

In the dead of winter, the vibrant Gloriosa Lily, with its ruby petals, stands out like a roaring flame.

In the dead of winter, the vibrant Gloriosa Lily, with its ruby petals, stands out like a roaring flame. Baron Z.W. Rothschild brought the flower to Europe from Africa in 1902 (it’s also known as the Rothschild Lily), and now it’s widely available across the globe. Angelica Gomes, owner of New York’s Magnolia Flowers, suggests pairing the Gloriosa with “velvety red roses” and skimmia (a shrub that bears ruddy berries in winter). “There’s something about this flower that’s so incredibly romantic,” Gomes says.
