Nerine

Late-flowering members of the Amaryllis family which flower in the autumn without their leaves. Often seen as ‘fickle’, they seem to grow and flower unattended in some gardens whilst worried over and fussed in others they appear to flower sparsely. They do need good light, some summer moisture and to be left alone until really thickly clumped, then they flower. Close observation of all the flowers will reveal the magical sparkle that they exhibit in sunlight.
