    It looks like a rain lily.

    They are pretty flowers! I love that color - most I've seen have been white.

    Very nice!
    Never heard of a Rain Lily, is it strictly for water?

    I think it would do okay in moist ground conditions too. It even seems to say plant in well drainage soil. Well the pond argues that a bit. I think it may work everywhere. Depends on where you read. I do not think it will survive my zone. Seems to say the blub does not like below 29 degrees. They call it hardy but not so much for here.

    I had them here, they all died after a few winters, was told to dig them up for them to survive. Sure were pretty though.

    I marked where they were, dug them up, damaging a few, planted the next year and did not dig up again.
