Native to the Gulf of Mexico region, this hard-to-find species is a truly elegant rain lily with long, dark green foliage and long stems ending in lovely, narrow-petalled, pale yellow flowers, red-blushed on the exterior, fading into a pink-peach colour. Surprisingly, this species grows well in wet to very dry soils.
Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered very thinly indeed with compost or grit, leaving some of the seed showing as light may aid germination. 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 longer. Pot on into small pots before finally planting into a large pot, or outside in warmer countries.
