Notes
- the White Rainlily, is sometimes erroneously called "Autumn Crocus," and because of its attractive foliage can be a most useful landscape plant. The winter growing foliage  is dark green and at first glance looks somewhat like monkey grass. It is excellent as a border plant for sunny areas and is easily propagated by division. White Rainlilies are native to the shores of Rio de la Plata, the River of Silver in Argentina, which takes its name from this white-blooming Fairy-Lily. Flowers appear from late summer well into the fall, usually beginning with autumn showers.
