Rain lily, also known as Zephyranthes, is a genus of about 70 species of bulbous perennials in the Amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae). Rain lilies are native to the Americas, from the southern United States to Argentina, and are commonly grown as ornamental plants in gardens. Rain lilies are so named because they tend to bloom after a rainfall, often within a few days of a good soaking. The plants produce grass-like leaves and short stems that bear clusters of delicate, trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of white, pink, yellow, or red. The flowers are usually short-lived, but are produced in abundance, making for a striking display.
Rain lilies are relatively easy to grow and can be propagated from bulbs or seed. They prefer well-draining soil and should be watered regularly during the growing season, but allowed to dry out between waterings during dormancy. They can be grown in full sun or partial shade, and will benefit from occasional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer. Rain lilies can be planted in borders, rock gardens, or containers, and are often used to add color to dry, sunny areas. They are also a popular choice for naturalizing, as they will readily self-seed and spread over time. However, it's worth noting that some species of rain lily can be invasive in some areas, so it's important to check with local authorities before planting them in the wild.
