Abundant Blooms on the Rain Lily

What an amazing plant !
All it takes is a bit of a good hard rain, and my favorite potted lily blooms like crazy.  Zephyrhantes grows along all summer with it's healthy looking leaves and you can count on a flush of blossoms 2 or 3 days after a soaking rain storm. 

Someday I'd like to collect the rainwater in a sealed container and trick it into blooming when the weather  is really dry!

Zephyranthes aka Rain Lily = one of my all time favorite tropical plants!

Read more about this cool plant at the following websites.
See what I had to say about zephyr lilies last year.
