Pink Rain Lilies in 4" Pot
Each pot contains 3-5 pink rain lilies (Habranthus robustus) and will be shipped in their pots. When box arrives, open and water immediately. Habranthus robustus multiply quickly by seed or multiplication.
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.
Every May and June, the Habranthus pink rain lilies begin to really take off! When they are finished blooming, large seed pods will form. These seeds can be sown directly in the garden and very quickly lead to a healthy population in the garden! Don't worry, they are not considered invasive and can be easily removed if needed.
Collecting these seeds led to one of my first dates with my wife! 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. That is what Rebecca and I did on one of our first dates many years ago. I wish the weather had been nicer (it was blistering hot) but she must have had a good time because that was just the beginning of our exciting journey! That heat also speaks to another quality of the flower...they will bloom even during some of our hottest summer months.
