{Our Zephyranthes Candida - Rain Lily}

Zephyranthes flowers are very similar to Habranthus flowers and both are called Rain Lilies. Zephyranthes flowers tend to be star shaped and Habranthus have somewhat irregular flowers. Read more in detail below post under Zephyranthes. 
Also our Zephyranthes Candida Rain Lily, commonly called Fairy Lily is a member of the Amaryllidaceae family. Blogger friend Sarah from HYACINTHS FOR THE SOUL did show us her Habranthus Rain Lily in pink. Just scroll down on her blog. 
 Our Zephyranthes Candida is native to Argentina and Uruguay
Here I did arrange them in a silver vase on a tray and also showing you two buds and two of its leaves in the back.
They do look a bit like Crocus... and are also a flower bulb.
On a tray in the gazebo in daylight.
Zephyranthes flowers point straight up and have equal stamens.
Habranthus flowers point upward BUT at an angle and have unequal stamens.
Here you can actually count the 6 equal stamens. 
Lovely greenish center...
All photos are taken on August 29, when we had our first summer tea in the gazebo after cleaning up the mud.
In the back you see our pond...
Proof of sunshine after all our summer rain! 
This is at 18:00 o'clock...
Here is how they grow, beside our gazebo...
Hope you enjoyed this unique summer blooming bulb!
Does any of you also having these? Or in a different color?
From those links below you can check other colors.

      That is so true! Wish you would have some of our moisture. Still muddy here as the soil is so saturated. Hope you soon will get some so things can balance back to normal...

  2. Dearest Mariette,
    the Rain Lilly is wonderful! I do not have any of this kind in my garden, don't know, if they would grow here.
    Have a wonderful and happy weekend,

      Guess it will be too cold for them in your region. We live at a latitude of North Africa so that is quite a difference.
      Wishing you too a very happy weekend!

  3. Certainly do not have such blooms here. Heat has returned after a week of humidity and a couple of days of dust. My balconies are awful right now and the plants need lots of tlc. Have a fabulous Friday! Tammy

      Yes we are lucky for having quite some different flowers, year round. It adds beauty to daily life. Thanks for your kind words.
      we're hoping our bougainvilleas will bloom one day; we moved them into the bright sun.

      Questi sono anche i bulbi come Crocus ma solo fioriscono in estate tarda. Essi sono dalla famiglia Amarilli. Una dolce sorpresa alla fine dell'estate e mi è piaciuto condividerle con voi!

      They are a lovely surprise for late summer indeed but I guess they don't thrive in colder regions as they are from the Amaryllis family...

  8. Hi Mariette, your flowers are beautiful! I'm always amazed you've grown such beautiful flowers in your garden! Also I can't stop admiring your vase. What a lovely design!

      Oh, certain little bulbs can grow into a lovely surprise for late summer, that's what I like about them. Being from the Amaryllis family and blooming so unexpectedly late in season. Rain lily was an appropriate name for 2013!
      Oh, that vase is one I really fell in love with when I bought that in The Netherlands at Things of Beauty...
      Wishing you also a very sunny and wonderful weekend!

  17. Mariette, I had a single bloom this past week after a sudden afternoon rain. I hope to plant more within my herb garden as they seem to do well in the gravel bed. They are such sweet surprises!

      Ja, dat is ook de aard van onze tuin, zoals boven mijn blog staat aangegeven houden we van tuinieren maar dan wel op de botantische manier. Geen gewone huis- tuin en keuken eenjarig zaaigoed.
      Dit is ook weer een heel bijzonder en móói exemplaar en we zijn er trots op.
      Ook een fijne zondag voor jullie en hopelijk met wat zon.
