Cooperia drummondii Herb.
Longevity : Perennial
Cebolleta is found in clayey or sandy soils of the Edwards Plateau and South Texas Plains. It is usually seen one to two days after a rain, hence the name rain-lily. Cebolleta grows from a bulb and reaches six to eighteen inches in height. The leaves are smooth, slender and grass-like. The flower is white and sometimes tinged with pink on the outer surface. Cebolleta has a floral tube three to seven inches long, distinguishing it from the White or Giant Rainlily who has a shorter floral tube. Though this plant can bloom as early as June, it normally blooms in September and October. The seeds are eaten by bobwhite quail.
