There are many rain lilies that bloom all across the world, but few put on the show of Zephyranthes grandiflora. This is the large flowered traditional pink rain lily. The joyful flowers open wide on stalks about 6-8 inches above their flattened dark green foliage. They bloom through the hottest part of summer and will bloom numerous times, usually following a rain. Summer thundershowers, with their splash of water and quick cooling of temperatures, trigger massive blooms three to five days after the storm has passed. This is why they are called rain lilies!
Zephyranthes grandiflora is great in part shade to full sun and performs well under irrigation. These larger rain lily bulbs quickly clump and spread, offering a showy display in an otherwise dormant summer garden. The dark pink showy displays make great borders easily seen from afar. These special bulbs are uniquely suited for warm climates and require very little maintenance. Normally, all that is required is some manual weeding around the clumps of bulbs as they grow with other active summer plants and seeds.
The pinks on the grandiflora rain lily are so vibrant they are almost an iridescent combination of pink, purple, and maybe even a hint of blue. When comparing to our other popular rain lily, Habranthus robustus, think about these differences:
1) The Zephyranthes grandiflora blooms with an open, star-like look, while the Habranthus robustus has a more trumpet, elongated bloom.
2) Blooms on a Z. grandiflora are a dark, rich pink while the H. robustus are more lighter pink.
3) Foliage on the Z. grandiflora is darker green and smaller, while the H. robustus foliage is a paler and flatter green foliage.
