Rain Lily makes a comeback

Every variety of lily chooses it's season to bloom depending on  favorable  conditions .One such lily that chose the monsoon season to bloom is Rain Lily or Zephyr Lily .They do not require much care still give startling blooms with the spell of rain .
         Rain lily stays with grass like leaves all year around and gives its blooms with down pour of rain .Although they bloom profusely in monsoon ,but some varieties also bloom with showers during anytime in the year.
I have collection of some varieties of rain lily ,among all my collection the biggest blooms are of Pink Rain lily.They definitely look spectacular when bloomed in array.

There is a pink lily variety with smaller blooms and green center  in the middle of the flower

White rain lily has basically two varieties : One lily with bigger blooms                                          

and other with star shaped comparatively smaller blooms                                                                

Yellow rain lilies have the smallest blooms among all rain lily varieties.                                            

Happy Monsoon  !!!
