Common Name Atamasco Lily Variety  
Regional Names Rain Lily, Zephyr Lily, Wild Easter Lily
Botanical Name Zephyranthes atamasco
Description This wild native lily is native to the flood plains and seeps in the southeastern US. It is beautiful with erect white flowers opening in May that are most impressive especially in groupings. I have seen wild populations with thousands in full flower and in no way can one describe the site other than walking on clouds or snow blanketing the earth. This small plant reaches a mature near 14"High with 3-4" erect snow white flowers. A long-lived perennial that prefers moist rich, but well drained soils. We recommend groupings of 5 or more for the best show. We would like to recommend to you that Atamasco lilies be planted under trees in a shady location to protect the flowers from heavy spring rains. Reseeds freely. TOXIC WHEN EATEN!!! VERY EASY TO GROW!!!
