Zephyranthes 'Lucky All Over' is a Yucca Do rain lily selection from the Zephyranthes drummondii hybrid, 'Labuffarosea' strain. Starting in mid-July and continuing through September, the evergreen foliage is topped, a few days after each rain event, with 8" tall flower spikes, ending in dark pink, overlapping round-petaled, fragrant flowers, each highlighted by a contrasting white eyezone...a splendid selection.
Zephyranthes have a long medicinal history as well. Research has shown that bulbs and leaves can be used to treat cancer, diabetes, ear and respiratory ailments like cough, colds, tuberculosis, as both an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal treatment, and as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (aka: nerve agent).
