Wild Weeds – Weed of the Month
Rain Lily is a short-lived perennial wildflower that occurs in moist flatwoods, river swamps, floodplains, and can often be found in ditches and roadsides. As the name suggests, this plant typically blooms after a rain shower.
Flowering can occur in later winter through early summer. Look for solitary, showy white flowers scattered on the roadside. These flowers have bright yellow stamens and 6 distinct lobes that unite at the base to form a funnel.
