Rain Lily

Zephyranthes candida

A crocus lookalike, rain lily is an easy-to-grow bulb perfect for hot-summer climates. It bears grassy foliage and starry white flowers in summer and early fall. It usually goes dormant after it blooms, so plant it with a groundcover so you're not left with a bare spot in the garden. Like most bulbs, it looks best in mass plantings.

Rain lily does best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It's a wonderful choice for rock gardens. In climates where the bulb is not hardy, you can dig it in fall and store it in a frost-free place over winter.
