Habranthus hail from the dry, rocky slopes of South America where they bloom in harsh conditions with ease.
The flowers begin blooming in summer, and the season can extend into autumn. The blooms open most commonly in pairs, occasionally in groups of four, they look similar to the common Rain Lily (Zephryanthes) and are closely related, and like them flower with the rains. Each flower is around 5cm across, and while they look fragile can last weeks.
The arching, lance shaped leaves emerge summer to autumn. They are wiry and just under a centimetre wide. The foliage is semi evergreen.
Pink Copper Lily thrives in a full sun position. Like other members of the Amaryllidaceae family they like to be planted with the neck of the bulb at or just exposed above soil level.
A rare find and a worthy addition to a sunny spot in your garden.
