White Rain Lilies



These Rain Lilies are the Native variety that are fast disappearing. Our rain lilies were about a month to 6 weeks late because our rain came late. They will not bloom without real rain.


I plant them in partial shade here, but likely would take full sun most places. Multiply very quickly and very easy to plant, but mostly only bloom once a year.

No species ID suggestions

Beautiful, I too thought they looked like snow drops that would come up every yr in my back yard growning up in Rochester Ny. One of the first flowers of spring.

Those are beautiful, Alice! I've never seen rain lilies before. The pure white makes them look so delicately pretty. They kind of remind me of snow drops, which we sadly didn't seem to get this year!
