Plant of the month this February is the delightful little flower is Zephyranthes candida or the Fairy or Rain Lilly. It flowers over a long period spring into autumn, but these I saw today, obviously happy with all the recent rain. Its leaves can reach 30 cm in length and is great planted in mass at the front of a border. Watering will extend its flowering season. We’d plant this alongside a companion plant with larger or different shaped leaves, to give a contrast in texture. Currently available at Awa Nursery, our favourite place to buy plants.
