Common Name Rain Lily Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Habranthus robustus
Description The species robusta is native to Argentina north to Brazil in regions that receive regular rain fall except late summer and autumn. It is one of the largest flowering species of all rain lily species. It flowers in early summer as all rain lilies do after heavy rains producing medium pale pink flowers. Always consider an old friend as is often Z. grandiflora in the garden. It has been used as a summer flowering bulb for ever it seems. Every summer it is free flowering and reliably after storms and brightens any open sunny location that provides adequate moisture. It is not picky about soil types just simply needs sun and consistent moisture. H. robusta multiplies rapidly into a colony with proper conditions. TOXIC WHEN EATEN!!! VERY EASY TO GROW!!!
