(aka: Habranthus P7576-95-50) Habranthus robustus 'Pink Chiffon' is a 2022 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a selection from the collection of the late rain lily guru, John Fellers. In our trials of plants from a 2009 rescue of his collection after John's death, this is one of the few selections we found worthy of naming and introducing. Habranthus 'Pink Chiffon' puts on an amazing floriferous show of huge 4" light pink flowers, starting for us in late June, atop 1' tall stalks. Flowering continues through the summer, starting within 2-3 days after each rain shower.
