Hardiness of Zephyranthes foliage

I got several zephyranthes and habranthus species and cultivar seeds from last year bx's. 

Half of the seeds were sowed in 2012 just after arrival. The other half of the seeds I sowed in april this year. Remarkable the seeds sow this year germinated twice as good as those sow last year. During the winter the seeds were stored in a bedroom so at normal temperature.

The only pity is that a lot of names on the labels are lost, because waterproof ink is sometimes not so waterproof after all. Next time will stick to a pencil. 

Is now a good time to replant the zephyranthes or is spring a better moment? Most of the leaves turn yellow now.

I'm curious why they are called rainlily. Couldn't find any particular reason after googling.
