For a charming, somewhat whimsical, look in the landscape, consider planting this exotic offering. Sparkling Jip Gloriosa Lily boasts unique good looks and a rare bicolor reverse coloration on its heavily ruffled, upturned petals. Though not a true lily, it produces the same feeling of elegant gentility when in full bloom. This vining perennial reaches an impressive height and will require support to show its blooms to best advantage. Create a fanciful secret space by letting Sparkling Jip trail up and over a gated archway or vertically along a white picket fence where butterflies will find it irresistible.
