Habranthus Pink Rain Lily

Habranthus robustus

There are many rain lilies that bloom all across the world, but few put on the show of Habranthus robustus. This pink rain lily will bloom 4 to 6 times in one summer, not minding the heat or humidity. They can be seen performing in shady areas and in Full Sun. These larger rain lily bulbs quickly clump and spread, offering a showy display in an otherwise dormant summer garden.
