Last picture here is of Z. candida & Z. citrina they're both blooming right now!
Family: Amaryllidaceae •
Genus: Zephyranthes •

Country of Origin: Argentina and Uruguay •
Common Names: Rain-lily, Fairy-lily, Zephyr-lily •
Here's another of the Zephyranthes sp. that I talked about in my previous Zephyranthes post.
This is a white form which I'm 99.9% sure is Z. candida. What a beautiful flower, I love these little plants which are related to Amaryllis. I still have two more species that haven't bloomed yet a pink form Zephyranthes simpsonii and an unknown species (It hasn't flowered yet so I haven't been able to id it!). I'll post those when they bloom.
the Pacific Bulb Society has alot of info and pictures of all the different species.
