Rain Lilies is what they are commonly referred to, as a few drizzles and these Geometrically Perfect Blossoms spring out from Green blade like leaves.
I do recall seeing a Pink variation covering the Rain fed Hills of Sikkim and was thus pleasantly surprised to see Rain Lilies decked in White in the Corinthian Resort & Club, Pune, Maharashtra, India.
Many trees and plants are neatly labelled in this resort and that is really helpful in honing down the time required to identify Flora and their Botanical names.
Though in this case the Botanists of the Resort have erred slightly ( Zypranthus Lily ?) in the botanical ( scientific) name and if they wish they could update it.
These Perfectly proportioned Six Petaled White Lilies with Green Centres and Saffron stamens remind me of the colours of the Indian Tricolour.
The Fairy Lily or Rain Lily ( Common names), Zephyrtanthes candida ( Scientific name) is a Flower native to Central and South America and belongs to the Nargis family Amaryllidaceae. ( knowing the family is very important as mentioned in earlier blogs too )
The Contrasting Black Seeds seem to be Wind Blown and the Perfect Flowers spring forth with the arrival of The Monsoons, announcing the end of the Hot Summer months.
You will see these lovely Nature Perfect Lilies in White, Pink and Yellow across India as they are are Naturalized here but hide many toxic alkaloids in their Bulbs under the ground.
The botanical name of the Fairy Lily arises from the name of the Greek Wind God, Zephyr and the life giving Monsoons ( rainy season) bearing Rain clouds arrive in India buffeted by Winds from The Indian Ocean and beyond.
