We previously thought this was a Zephranthes sp. until a customer familiar with this species correctly identified the genus, and then another knowledgeable person identified the correct species. This bulb, one of the "Rain Lilies" and native to southern Brazil, produces linear leaves followed by relatively large flowers. The flowers are multicolored white to purple and are quite pretty. We grow these plants in either pot culture or directly in the ground in Tucson. In pots, they frequently flower earlier than the typical late summer – fall blooming period. These plants are rooted offsets in 3-inch pots.
