Zephyranthes Candida - Rain Lilies

I am about to do a mass planting of rain lilies around hydrangeas and under our large oak tree.
I know that many/most plants don't thrive under oak trees but these seem quite hardy.
The foliage is great as a ground cover and when they flower they are so pretty.
Any thoughts?

What a good idea! They are a beautiful plant and very tolerant as far as I know. I'd forgotten all about them but have now put them on my list for our new garden after we move to the Waikato next week.

Oh gosh I now have 100 of these in the garden and have also planted mock orange blossom, gardenia, coffee and camellias in the same area. The mulch should arrive in about 15 minutes.
Nothing like doing things all at once.

Well done! I'm itching to get stuck into planting in our new garden after we move next week. We will have half an acre of bare land to play with once it's cleared and the only thing we're keeping is one maple.

Wow a half acre to plan and plant is certainly exciting.
We (the woofer and I) shovelled 3 cubic metres of bark mulch around the plants today.
It is hard work but satisfying to look at once the job is complete.
