This rapidly multiplying and floriferous rain lily is an E.L. Brasol hybrid, presumed to be a cross involving Zephyranthes candida and Zephyranthes citrina (actually Zephyranthes 'Ajax' probably backcrossed to Zephyranthes candida). After rain in summer and early fall, the 8" tall clumps are smothered with large creamy cups, highlighted by the yellow anthers. In our trials, Zephyranthes 'Aquarius' seems to be apomictic (comes true from seed).
