Zephyranthes candida - Rain lily

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!


Zephyranthes Candida is the posh name for our gorgeous little Rain Lily. This lovely low ground cover looks like long glossy grass until it rains, and then white cup-shaped flowers pop out to enjoy the moisture. Beautiful white flowers will appear nearly all year round.

This is a pretty mound-forming border plant that covers bare patches of soil especially when it’s mass-planted. They’re oh-so-lovely in rockeries, pots, or scattered randomly around the garden. We shouldn’t have favourites, but you know - this is a real heart-stealer.

Despite being pretty and delicate they are frost hardy and withstand drought once established- although if you want flowers regular water is required.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a ground cover extraordinaire so I’m perfect for borders, under-planting, making a splash in rockeries, pots and anywhere there’s a gap. In most climates my leaves are evergreen. My grass-like foliage adds texture to a border. 
  • I grow to: 30cms high and 30cms wide. 

  • I am currently: 10-15cm

  • Where to place me: Plant me in full sun to part-shade with my feet out of boggy soils.

  • How far to space me: 15-20cms apart, please. 

  • Soil Conditions: Free-draining soils are really important to me and a layer of mulch will help keep moisture in and weeds out.

    Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
