Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Monday, 2 March 2020 is Cyrtanthus elatus.

Cyrtanthus elatus, the Scarborough lily, is a bulbous flowering plant which originates from the Cape Province of South Africa. Other common names are fire lily and George lily.

Cultivars of the Scarborough lily have flowers which may be bright red, orange, yellow, or occasionally pink or white. The stems can grow to a height of 2 ft (0.61 m). They are relatively easy to grow in a warm, sheltered, frost-free spot. Alternatively, they can be grown under glass in pots. They require either full sun or slight shade. They flower in late summer or early autumn.

The Latin specific epithet elatus means “tall”. This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit (confirmed 2017).

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:41 UTC on Monday, 2 March 2020.
