  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: September to November
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    One of the hardier forms, this beautiful nerine should survive outside all year round in sheltered gardens, provided the soil is not too heavy and wet. Their ruffled, shell-pink flowers are a delight, and they appear very late in the season adding some much-needed colour. In colder areas, they are best grown in a pot, so they can be overwintered in a cool greenhouse.

  • Garden care:Plant shallowly outside with their neck just above the surface of the soil at 10 - 15cm intervals from April onwards. They are happiest in a dense clump, so once planted avoid disturbing the roots and only lift and divide them when they have outgrown their alloted space.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
