Habranthus season

St. John's, NL(Zone 5b)

My Habranthus are flowering...I grow two species. This first I grew from seeds sent to me by Ursula in Chile. It took 4 years! These are the first blooms. It is Habranthus tubispanthus

This is Habranthus robustus, sent to me by a DG'er whom I can't recall! Whoever you are, many thanks.....they are budding like crazy!

Those are beautiful, Todd:)) I have not yet grown Habranthus only Zephranthes. Do these overwinter outside for you or have you had them in a greenhouse. I'm nuts for a good rain lily.

I overwinter them in a greenhouse. I think I got the pink one as a zephranthes but ID'ed it as a Habranthus after the fact. We can't get them in my area so I rely on seed or the kindness of strangers :)

LOL! Kindness of...very good:) I picked a new one at PDN today...I'd have to look at the tag, but it's very cool. My z. Big Dude finally bloomed only to have a hard rain render it almost see through...Can't wait to see the bloom in all its glory.
I must look up some diff. Habs..see what kind of zone they will overwinter.
