My Rain Lilies (Zephyranthes carinata) gave a wonderful show these past few weeks with the welcomed rains. Rain lilies can be propagated by separating the offsets on the bulbs and planting them in spring. Some rain lilies produce seed pods which I’ve collected this fall and will plant in a test container. I can’t wait to see what happens.
The pod forms after the flower has closed, dried up and fallen off. The pod has three sections.
As the pod enlarges and dries, the top of each section splits.
The dark seeds are revealed.
They literally burst out of the pod and fall to ground.
I collected some to save for a test planting in a container. We will see what happens.
