Description

Let the gleaming golden faces of Zephyranthes sulphurea bring a long-lasting glow to your summer garden! Although Zephyranthes are commonly known as rain lilies, this species will pour nothing but floods of sunshine into the garden with its lovely yellow blooms, particularly if planted in close groups or swathes. These petite plants have narrow foliage and dainty flowers with pointed petals, their appearance is not too dissimilar to that of a species tulip. Unlike tulips, you can expect to see yellow Zephyranthes appear for a summer and autumn show.

To enjoy Zephyranthes sulphurea at their best, they’ll need a sunny position with free draining soil. They’re compact enough to be grown in narrow spaces and quite like to be crowded, this makes them ideal for planting in a border or pot which is next to a wall or building. In such a position, Zephyranthes sulphurea will enjoy extra warmth during summer which they love, and also some shelter from the harshest weather during winter. Yellow rain lilies aren’t completely hardy, but they will cope in areas with mild winters where temperatures fall no lower than around -5°C.

Zephyranthes sulphurea is a must-have for any avid gardener. With its vibrant yellow flowers and ability to withstand various weather conditions, it will add a beautiful touch to any outdoor space. Its easy maintenance makes it perfect for both experienced and novice gardeners alike. Get ready to add some zest to your garden with Zephyranthes sulphurea!
