Rain Lily

Here are few pictures of rain lily in our garden. This plant belongs to genus Zephyranthes with more than 70 species.  The foliage is thick green grass-like.  The flowers bloom in late summer after few showers of rain and in early rainy season.  In summers and winter the grassy leaves just survive and can withstand severe summers and drought

I have seen three colors of these flowers –  white, pink and yellow.  We have pink and yellow ones.  Here are few pictures of the same.

These flowers when bloom in clusters appear like a bright colorful carpet.  The flowers last for two to three days.
