Dear Cathy, Thanks for the compliment. I wish all the pots looked as good! Further experiments in dunking rainlilies have not yielded any heavy bloomers. The following were soaked for about 30 hours, with water to the rim of the pot, or completely submerged. None of them provided the burst of bloom I got from the hybrids. Z. primulina continues to bloom intermittently, as does the pot received as Z. robustus (Z. grandiflora? definitely a Zeph). The rest pretty much ignored the whole think. However, in the interests of science Mother Nature has opted, at long last, to rain on Waterloo, IL. Though it isn't a great deal of rain (1 1/2 inches over about a week) it has remained cool, overcast and damp. We'll see if they can tell the difference.

My fantasy bookshelf contains a detailed book of Rainlily kin, shelved right next to the one on the genus Allium.
