That’s Huge!!!!!!

Habranthus x floryii ‘Amazing Jumbo’ Zone 8-10
Giant Rain Lily

I purchased this bulb earlier this year and am very pleased that it is blooming already. Habranthus and Zephranthes are commonly known as rain lilies. Both of the genera flower a few days after a rain event. The flower on this one is literally 4-5 inches in diameter. I will be interested to see how quickly it multiplies, and can’t wait until it flowers again.
