Description for Zephyranthes Grandiflora, Rain Lily (Any Color)

Plant height: 5 - 9 inches
Plant spread: 4 - 6 inches

This product does not have the flowers at the time of shipping. Afterward, the plant will bloom and it could be of any colored flower.

Pink, yellow and white crocus-like flowers bloom from late spring through late summer, sometimes earlier during rainy seasons. Multiple flowers bloom on each stem.
Zephyranthes grandiflora is a wonderful rain lily with 8" long, flat, glossy green foliage that quickly forms a nice 1 wide clump. All summer, clumps of Zephyranthes grandiflora are topped with 12" tall stalks of giant, libido-awakening, 3" rose-pink flowers.
A clump can have up to 20 flowers open at once...absolutely spectacular. Zephyranthes grandiflora can be even more of a shocker when used in a mass planting...nothing demure or quaint here!

Common name(s): pink rain lily , pink fairy lily , pink magic lil
Flower colours: white, pink, yellow
Bloom time: July to August
Max reachable height: 0.75 to 1.00 feet
Difficulty to grow: easy to grow

Caring for Zephyranthes Grandiflora

  • Grow potted rain lilies in a soil-based potting mix with extra sand added.
  • They do best when crowded and slightly pot-bound. During the summer, fertilize every 3-4 weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Outdoors, rain lilies like a moist but well drained soil in full sun.
  • Light: Grow rain lilies in full sun, or in part shade, especially a high shade from tall trees.

Typical uses of Zephyranthes Grandiflora
