Comments: This is a yellow blooming selection that will naturalize if bulbs are left in place for several years. Rain lilies are surprises in late summer and early fall when they bloom at a time when few other plants are in flowers. Provide a well drained soil and sunlight for the best performance although this bulb is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions.
