These very large, Hippeastrum-like flowers, bright pink with a paler eye, can multiply rapidly and soon carpet the garden in late spring. In a warm spot in the UK, or in warmer countries, they are one of the most impressive plants that can be allowed to naturalise.
Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered about 5-10 mm deeply. Keep the pot moist at a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees C in a well-lit position. Seeds should germinate within 2 to 6 weeks but may take much longer so do not discard the seed tray. Pot on small seedlings into 3 inch or 7cm pots until of a size suitable for final planting into a large pot or outside in warmer countries.
Common name:Pink Fairy Lily, Pink Rain Lily, Zephyr Lily, Zephyranthes robusta
