Gardeners' Notes:

I have a nice patch of these, which bloom readily either after a good rain or when watered deeply following a dry spell. I've never seen seed pods though, and I think this hybrid is sterile. It multiplies rapidly by offset, however, so there's always enough to share. The color combination of soft pink, rich green eye, gold stamens, and white pistil is very beautiful. One of my favorite rain lilies among more than a dozen that I grow.

Beautiful small blooms. Wonderful to look at after Summer rains. Planted under a tree as a ground cover. Bulb comes back every year.

Enjoyable blooms after drenching rains. Kept in a pot. Notice the seed pods. Easy to harvest and plant.
