Comments: This is a wonderful surprise lily that blooms in late summer and early fall. Bulbs naturalize nicely and form colonies if the rush-like foliage is allowed to mature after blooming in the fall. Rain lilies tolerate a wide range of growing conditions provided that soils are well drained. They will grow in full sunlight to partial shade. Bulbs can be transplanted at the time the foliage begins to die.
