White Rain Lily - Zephyranthes Candida



Common names: Zephyr lily, Fairy lily, August rain lily, Peruvian swamp-lily, Zephyr flower, and Autumn zephyr lily

It is challenging to get this plant to flower when having this plant in a shady area. I have to relocate this one time to time in placing the them in a proper place so that it will get maximum sunlight. Without it, it will only remain a foliage plant.
I had placed two types here - the red and the white. Hopefully one day they bloom continuously.
I also had placed small pebbles inside the pot to give an ascetic look, so it won't look so boring especially while waiting for them to bloom. I wish I get the whole pot full of this lilies so then I can do away with the white pebbles and when they do flower, it would be many blooms.

Propagation Methods: By dividing rhizomes, tubers, corms or bulbs (including offsets).

The lilies below are from my wife working place area. The are thriving beautifully now as its been a sunny weather these few weeks. This one is placed near the road borders.
