  Zephyranthes sp.  (Amaryllidaceae family)

This sweet flower typically  lasts only one day.  If you’d like to see it today, go into the succulent greenhouse and look on the east bench.  This genus is closely related to Daffodils, and Amaryllis.  The leaves on this plant are very narrow, and linear.  The plant in the background with green leaves and red veins belongs to a Caladium plant growing nearby.
