It's hard to remember the emotions that ran through my mind when I first saw Zephyranthes 'Heart Throb' in flower, but my guess is, it must have resembled a hot flash. This Yucca Do introduction is a nocturnally-opening hybrid of Zephyranthes drummondii, from the famed 'Labuffarosea' strain. From midsummer through fall (after rains) 6" stalks emerge, atop which unfurl lovely, 2" unique, reddish-pink (that's hard to capture with the camera) flowers with a white eye. The flowers change from dark reddish-pink to medium pink on day two, still highlighted by the contrasting white central eye zone. Zephyranthes 'Heart Throb' isn't fast to multiply, but we hope you'll agree it's worth the wait.
