Nerine 2022
« on: March 22, 2022, 08:04:39 AM »
Never thought Nerines would be able to burst a flower pot, but here is what I found when I fetched them from their winter storage.  Time to move them to a larger home :-)
Bulboholic, but with moderation.

A red nerine, probably what we call Nerine fothergilla 'Major' which is considered a form of Nerine sarniensis

Nerine undulata which has been in flower for several months is finally setting seed.  It is in an unheated but frost-free greenhouse, but I have so many seedlings that I am going to plant some out in the garden.

Wow, Diane,
that seems late to be in flower over there - it'll be in flower here next month I think.

Here's Nerine fothergilla 'Major' again.
And Nerine rosea.
Both of these are now considered to be forms of Nerine sarniensis.
I won't be changing my labels!
In our garden these are frost hardy - down to -7oC but the foliage of N. sarniensis gets burned off by frost so it and its hybrids rarely flower without protection,
