I think I've seen Zephyranthes atamasco growing along roadside ditches in north Florida..is that likely?

Yes, it ranges from Florida to North Carolina to the northeast and to the Gulf Coast areas to the west

Some more rain lilies blooming in my greenhouse today.  For instance, Zephyranthes insularum is found in the West Indies.  According to Thad Howard's book ("Bulbs for Warm Climates") the species does not set seeds.  Thad speculated that this may be because a separate clone is required to get fertilization.

Zephyranthes reginae is a pale yellow rain lily from valleys in tropical Mexico.

649190-2      649192-3

Zephyranthes macrosiphon is also in bloom today, with one lone blossom.

649194-4

I am removing and throwing away bunches of rain lily seed pods that formed during the recent spell of 90+ degree (F) weather we had, when I did not set foot inside the greenhouse for a week,  --  The greenhouse does have an automatic irrigation system.

Best to, all,
Jim

Some more  rain lilies blooming in my greenhouse today.  First, Habranthus caeruleus is blooming; a rare occurrence in my greenhouse to see caeruleus in flower.

Habranthus caeruleus, a "blue" rain lily.  (This one came from Diana Chapman at Telos Rare Bulbs.  This is my #2815.)  The flower is about 1.5 inches (ca. 37 mm) in diameter, and the peduncle is about 10 inches (25 cm) high.  According to Thad Howard in his book, "Bulbs for Warm Climates," it comes from Argentina (Entre Rios province) and Brazil (Parana and Santa Catarina states), where it is rare.

Right, Maggi, and here is another one.  This is Zephyranthes orellanae, a recently described species from the Yucatan Peninsula.  These were sent to me by Jose Zaldivar, and this is my first bloom of this species.  I'm quite excited about this one!

This pot of Habranthus itaobinus seedlings grew from seeds from Mauro Peixoto in Brazil (my #2843), labelled 'Itaobi' by Mauro.  A large pot of this in bloom might easily be mistaken for a pot of H. robustus.

In the right-hand photo, the two pink flowers in the background are also H. itaobinus.

A few cool nights and the rain lilies are suddenly in flower.

This is Habranthus robustus which indeed looks much like H. itaobinus Jim.

It rained earlier this week so some rain lilies are in bloom again.  These have been blooming after rain since May. Two pinks. Zeph macrosiphon on right and seedlings from the “Pink Beauty” on right. My guess is these are somewhat related

What has happened?

In 2017 I bought bulbs of Zephyranthes candida and they flowered in perfect white.
649994-0

Last year I don't remember. But this year they're flowering in light pink! Pink veins or pink tips.

Does anybody know this phenomene?

OK, guys, what is this one? It was listed by Mauro Peixoto about 4 years ago as his #MP13041, Zephyranthes sp. cf. citrina. I don't actually have a consistent example of citrina in my collection (!) (not funny) but I feel confident this one is not citrina. But what is it? This is my accession number 2997.

It is about the same size as some Habranthus robustus in near-by pots on the same bench.
