There isnt a RL I dont love but the labuffarosas, white or pink are my faves. Big showy flowers, prolific and zero care after planting.

Here in zone 6 my mother-in-law keeps hers in a water bucket and puts it out in the spring. It is tender here and needs to be put in the basement in the fall. Pretty pink flowers after it rains. She has had them for about 6 years or more.

This is a wonderful rain lily. Very prolific bloom. The seedlings seem to vary in color from pastel blush to darker pink. There are named selections available. The anthers are on short stalks and the pistil is not exerted from the stamen cluster. (This probably insures self pollinated as a rule.) Will set crossed seed.
