Wild varieties, mostly pale pink, dance in the dry meadows after a rare spring rain in central Florida. My garden variety tends to bloom only after I let the soil dry completely and then provide a complete soaking of the soil. Easy to divide the small bulbs whether in the garden or from a meadow. Needs full sun. May bloom several times from April to September, again, usually after a period of drought.
