What do you do on a date with a girl these days? Movies are so expensive, or at least the popcorn and drinks are expensive. Only so many nights can be spent eating out, and after you've done Chinese, Mexican, sushi, American, drive in, dine in, and take-out you're out of ideas. Well, if you're the Bulb Hunter, you ask your girl to put on her blue jeans and go collect rain lily seeds with you.
About a year ago, I had the chance to collect pink rain lily seeds from a really nice stand in College Station, TX. These were rain lilies that I had seen blooming four years earlier right before The New York Times ran a story on my life as the Bulb Hunter. They were blooming again (really every year since and several times a year) when I had the chance to collect more seed. I asked Rebecca to come along, and you can see her side of the story by clicking below:
There are many rain lilies that bloom all across the world, but few put on the show of Habranthus robustus. This pink rain lily will bloom 4 to 6 times in one summer, not minding the heat or humidity. They can be seen performing in shady areas and in full sun. These larger rain lily bulbs quickly clump and spread, offering a showy display in an otherwise dormant summer garden. The light pink showy displays make great borders often seen from afar.
