Looking for orange zephyranthes (rain lily) bulbs
« on: March 25, 2013, 19:01:41 PM »
Hi everyone.

I've also been a bit scarce for a while...
Will do a post or 2 in future.

A friend of mine is looking for Orange Rainlilies. I Googled it, and only found some US growers. Does anyone know of local growers in SA?

It seems many new hybrids are being developed by Fadjar Marta in Indonesia.

Regards.

Hi Clemens

I'm sure Roland will know the answer to that one - I've seen so many unknown-to-me bulbs on his FB page that I feel pretty ignorant these days....

I found some other beautiful Zephyranthes on the internet - beautiful enough to kill for



Zephyranthes katherinae 'Jacala Red'

Hi Rena

Search Bid or buy for "zephyranthes (rain lily)". They have purple, pink and yellow. They are very easy to grow from seed.

I use both seller to buy seeds from and both is 100%.

Kind regards
