Gardeners' Notes:

Positive dmj1218 On Aug 29, 2006, dmj1218 from west Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

A natural cross or hybrid from Cooperia pedunculata and a pink native Zephyranthes found in Tamaulipas Mexico. It was given the name Z. labufarosea for commercial purposes and has no scientific merit. It is obviously a natural hybrid and has its own characteristics. The name Labufa (not "labuffa") suggests the mountain on which it was found, and rosea suggests the color of the flower. The name could be translated as "the pink mountain" and is considered an old-fashioned heirloom for southern gardens. It occurs in both pink and white tones tinged with pink on the edge of the petals.
