Hi All, We are well into spring here in central North Carolina and I have been pleasantly surprised by all the rain lilies left outdoors for hardiness testing last winter. Everything survived, including all of the seedlings I grew from direct sown PBS BX distributions last year. It was not a particularly cold winter here, but we did fall below 10F (-12C) a few nights. Biggest surprise for me was Z. rosea, which I thought to be too tender to survive our winters here. Below is the list of rain lilies which survived the 2004/2005 winter here in my garden in central North Carolina (Zone 7b). If there is interest I can do the same for the Crinum and Hymenocallis in my collection. Happy Gardening, Jay Zephyranthes 'Apricot Queen' Z. 'Aquarius' Z. atamasco Z. 'Big Dude' Z. candida Z.
