That last one is quite astonishing John :o
Your flexuosa 'Alba' is lovely too.

I agree with Ashley's comment about that last one - very lovely!
A few of mine;

Nerine bowdenii 'Lipstick' - one of the new Dutch bowdenii forms and I am very impressed; good sturdy stems and large and very long lasting flowers.


'Mister John'


N. sarniensis 'Uganda' my camera is recording this as too pink, it is much more of a deep mauve in real life.

654758-3
N. sarniensis 'Smokey Special', again the camera (and lack of sunshine) is not doing this justice.

Thanks Ashely and Gail,  I finally got an offset this year, as you might guess there's a waiting list.  Gail - Those are very nice, 'Uganda' is a unique colour and l can only hope 'Lipstick' appears in the garden centres here soon.  I think N. bowdenii 'Isabel' is a fine vigorous selection which bulks up quickly.

Very nice Gail.  Are those bowdenii forms fully hardy?
I had sarniensis 'Blue Magic' flower for the first time but in a murky 'bruised' shade which I hope improves in future years.

I've only got straight bowdenii and 'Alba' planted out as yet, so can't say from experience. I bought the 'Lipstick' from the Nerine and Amaryllid Society; they report that it seems to be the best of the new varieties and anticipate it being a good garden plant.

I bought a sarniensis 'Blue Magic' but it has not flowered for me yet - I await with interest...

John, I hope you name your dark purple one before you distribute it.

Nerine bowdenii is blooming, and the first variety to bloom this year is "Koen's Hardy" from a cut flower nursery in the Netherlands. This one is hardy outdoors over winter in Mr. Koen's fields, if he does not want to dig them in early winter after flowering. I tried them outdoors in the field here in central Indiana a couple of winters, and I had about an 80-90% loss each winter. Now I grow them in pots and they spend the winters inside a greenhouse. That's where they are now, and blooming. My #1425.

here is Koen's Hardy"  blooming on 25 November (1 month after Jim's plant), 4 hrs to the south of Jim.
