detailed seed-starting info below

Tender bulb from Mexico, with clear pink, six-petaled flowers. I like all rain lilies, but this one is especially cheerful with its wide-open petals and contrasting yellow stamens. Back in Pennsylvania, I grew these from seed once, but never got them to bloom. Another attempt, in Houston, was more successful: flowers appeared in late May of their third year, after some thunderstorms swung through. I hope they'll continue to be happy in our rock garden.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following areas: Houston rock garden, left fence nursery area
