I am currently growing Zephyranthes rosea.  I believe it is the true 
plant.  It looks nothing like Z. grandiflora or Z. Labuffarosea. It is a 
common plant is south Florida for edging beds.  It's about 6" including 
flowers.  The flowers are medium to small in size and a deep rose-pink 
color.  It blooms in the Tampa area about August. According to Thad 
Howard (Bulbs For Warm Climates) it comes from the mountains in Cuba.  
It is a charmer and one of my favorite rainlilies.
