The zesty, lemon-yellow blooms of Zephyranthes ‘Citrina’ will bring a refreshing burst of colour to your late summer display. Flowering in successive flushes for a prolonged period, the cheerful, crocus-like blooms are surrounded by wisps of narrow, reed-like foliage. Otherwise known as the ‘Rain Lily’ for its tendency to flower profusely after heavy showers, Zephyranthes enjoys full sun and will grow in a wide range of soil conditions. This versatile species is perfect for tucking into smaller spaces and growing in containers. Protected from hard frost and winter wet, ‘Citrina’ will happily naturalise into swathes of sunny blooms.
Plant Zephyranthes in a sunny, well-drained spot where they will spread freely in the garden. Sandy soil types which have a neutral to slightly acidic pH suit these plants best.
Plant bulbs in groups or drifts, 5cm deep, spaced 10cm apart in the soil. Water generously after planting and allow to settle.
Drought tolerant Zephyranthes, known as rain lilies, spring into flower in late summer, usually following a heavy rain soaking and enjoy humid conditions.
