Hi Rain Lily fans,

Alessandro has just added a couple of pictures to the wiki labeled 
Habranthus versicolor. I looked this genus up on the Kew checklist and got 
Habranthus versicolor Herb., Bot. Mag. 51: t. 2485 (1824).
This name is a synonym.
Accepted Name:  Zephyranthes versicolor (Herb.) G.Nicholson, Ill. Dict. 
Gard. 2: 107 (1885).

Can anyone tell me anything about it so I'll have text for the wiki page 
and instruct me about what name we should use?


Thanks in advance.

Mary Sue
