Our beautiful small pink rain liles that arrive complete with leaves have been found depicted in one of six photographs on the cover of Bulbs for Warm Climates, by Thad M. Howard. No photograph can convey its beauty. It's Zephyranthes rosea, with a notation "Lindley 1824" and a report that it's native to the mountains of Cuba. Elsewhere on line it's identified as the Cuban zephyrlily, or Zephyranthes rosea Lindl. (not the large pink rain lily).
