Zephyranthes Robustus flowers are erect and clear pink with deep glossy green grass-like leaves. One of the most prolific of the summer flowering Zephyranthes, they continuously bloom in waves from late summer to early fall. Where not hardy, Zephyranthes are easy to cultivate in pots, which you can move indoors after the first frost and allow to dry out. In the spring move them back outside again and water.

Zephyranthes Citrina’s bright golden yellow flowers are goblet-shaped. It re-seeds nicely and will go through several bloom cycles through the summer, blooming a couple of days after a good shower. The color of the blooms make them very noticeable, so they are best experienced in groupings. One of the easiest Zephyranthes to grow in the hotter drier gardens of Texas.
