This wonderful, semi-evergreen rain lily just can't be beaten as an easy-to-grow garden performer. The round, narrow, dark green foliage makes a thick clump. Beginning in summer, 1" tall, pure white, star-like flowers with dramatic golden stamens (pollen holders) arise just above the foliage. Zephyranthes candida makes a great specimen clump, but when used in a mass or for a border, it is simply indescribable! Although quite durable, Zephyranthes candida performs best in a rich or very moist site.
