Habranthus robustus is a cute little Argentinean rain lily, often mistakenly sold under the incorrect name, Zephyranthes robusta. The flat, 1' long, greenish grey, strap-shaped leaves make a nice background clump for the 10" stalks of sideways facing, mauve pink bell-shaped flowers that are produced consistently throughout the summer... especially after a rain. Habranthus robustus is a vigorous grower that is perfect for even the most inconsiderate of gardeners!
