In praise of what'sitsname

I want to shamelessly promote this little bulb and I don't know whether it's Zephyranthes citrina or a Cooperia.

What I do know is - it's happy in a pot and has been flushing with flowers all summer right to the present. Months of these lemon-skin yellow starry flowers.

So, if anyone is looking for a delightful little bulb that asks only water and the occasional splash of whichever fertiliser is passing by, I'd say this one. Z candida is delightful - and fickle. This one is spring, summer, autumn.

Ideal in a small garden, IMO. Well worth the space it takes.

End of shameless promotion. And I'm keeping all I have. Except for the ones I've potted for my mum. :-)))

RE: In praise of what'sitsname

I got some small bulbs of zephyranthes citrina last spring, I didn't really expect much from them last year. I have white rain lily that is lovely when it blooms, but that is occasionally. These little bulbs seemed to be in bloom all summer. We did have a rainy year, but it really bloomed every time it rained. I agree with you entirely!
