My name is Rajini. I am from Bangalore, India. I have a terrace garden and would like to share these pictures.
These plants are called rain lilies (Zephyranthes, Zones 7–10) because they tend to bloom throughout the summer, putting out a new flush of blooms after each rainstorm.
This rose is just stunning. I love how each petal is perfectly outlined in pink.
This rose has small individual flowers, but it makes up for that by producing them in these big clusters. I love how they open a darker pink and fade to near white, so the cluster shows many colors at once.
For multicolored roses, it’s hard to beat this one, with each bloom striped and speckled with pink and white. There are quite a few rose varieties that show this type of pattern. Each bloom is different, and all are beautiful.
