Pink Fairy Lily. Pink Rain Lily. Lovely light lavender flowers appear in the summer from this carefree, clumping blub.
(Amaryllidaceae) Native to Brasil. Formerly sold as Cyrtanthus speciosus. Syn. Zephyranthes robusta.
Light: Part shade is best, so place near a shrub or fine-textured shade tree.
Water: Moderate to heavy requirements provided that the soil is sharply draining.
Soil: Sharply draining, but high in organic matter.
Fertilizer: Relatively heavy feeder, so a slow-release fertilizer is appreciated. I use a peat-based potting mix with a generous helping of extra pummice added.
Hardiness: USDA Zone 9
