Description Discovered and described in 1836 by D.Don. Often referred to as species Zephyranthes pedunculata, drummondii And other syn. species names. It is native to Kansas, Oklahoma much of central Texas south to northern Mexico and then has a disjunct population in the state of Parana Brazil. The fragrant Flowers are pure white with puckered wavy petals and are thick and heavy compared to other rain lilies. This rain lily is the easiest to recognize out of flower because of its large blue-green foliage. It flowers most heavy in around March and April but can produces flowers all the way into September. Endemic to dry foothills of the Sierra Occidental up to 3,000'. It prefers rich very well drained soils in sun to part shade. It is our opinion along with others that it looks better in some shade but be sure to give it at least a half days sun. It occupying similar habitats Texas Hill Country as low as 600'. The bulbs are quite large 2" to 3". This is another specie selection with larger than average flowers from Texas that our good friend Rob Mc elwee found. TOXIC WHEN EATEN!!! VERY EASY TO GROW!!!
