This old selection of rain lily has the largest flowers that we have seen on a habranthus. It's like an H. robustus on lots of steroids. The unopened buds on this H. robustus hybrid are over 3" long. As the horizontally-held, cone-shaped flowers open, they reveal a green base in the throat of the flower. The boat-shaped green foliage, to 10" long, arches gently upward, eventually forming large clumps.
