Have you ever seen Rain Lilies? They 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, and hardy only in zones 7 to 10. But gardeners everywhere can plant them as annuals; they're great in patio pots. These little jewel-like flowers are a big favorite with kids.

Why 'Rain Lilies?' Because they tend to bloom after a heavy rain. 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 multiply freely. Enjoy!
