After the rain come the Rain Lilies


We had three days of constant rain and this morning I found the Rain Lilies in full bloom. The drought this year has not been kind to the Rain Lilies so far this summer this is the second time they bloomed.

Rain Lilies are great plants for lazy gardeners all you need to do is cut it back once a year and that’s it. It multiplies fast by forming offset bulbs so they are great to give as gift to friends, they also do very well in pots

So that's what rain lilies in the ground look like? I have to grow mine in containers so I can overwinter them inside. Those are beautiful all grouped like that.

How lovely your rain lilies look Rusty! Such a colourful display. Wish I could grow them here too.

WOW! those are fabulous. i have some rain lilies but they are light pink. with the rain we (finally)got last week mine did bloom but not profusely like yours. my neighbor got me started with a few bulbs and mine are multiplying fairly well and fast. you are right they are easy because they take care of themselves.

I just a book on Southern bulbs and author raved and raved about rain lilies, but not one picture was beatiful as these - NOW I want some rain lilies.

Wow....I just came across your blog by coincidence and I am really impressed by your rain lilies. Do you ever trade/sell bulbs? The color is absolutely stunning! Thank you for sharing.
