Description for Zephyranthes Candida (White)

Rain lily is a bulbous perennial that is native to the Rio de la Plata region of South America. In the wild, plants often burst into bloom immediately following periods of significant rain, hence the common name.
Crocus-like, white flowers, sometimes blushed with pink, bloom singly atop upright stems rising tall above a tuft of outward-spreading, narrow, grass-like, green leaves. Bloom appears in late summer to early fall.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Fairy Lily, Zephyr Lily, Rain Lily White Late summer to early fall 0.50 to 1 feet Easy to grow
