Rain Lilies were probably a favorite of your grandmother's; I know they were a favorite of mine. She always had 'Rain Lilies' in the lawn at her South Florida home. This little lily (only about 10 inches tall) is a tropical wildflower, native to the topics of Central America and hardy down to zone 7. In colder zones, they're great as annuals, or grown in containers. These little jewel-like flowers are a big favorite with kids.

Rain Lilies tend to bloom after a heavy rain, hence their common name! In fact, they'll do it 6 or 8 times during spring, summer and fall. After a dry period, you get some soaking rain, and then when the sun comes out the next day, there they are adding brilliant color wherever you planted them. In the lawn, like fall crocus, is great, but they're also lovely at the front of the garden, in front of foundation plantings, and along walks. And in warm areas, they easily naturalize, adding more color to your garden year after year.
