These new x Amarine Belladiva hybrids were bred by the grower Kitty de Jong in Holland ~ she was responsible for the variety of Nerine bowdenii variety 'Isabel', a very fine dark-flowered hardy nerine, named after her daughter.

Breeding nerines is not difficult, but it's about 4 years before you'll get a flower & it takes a lot of greenhouse space (pers. experience).

Good to know Malcom.  N. 'Isabel' is a vigorous & lusty big-flowered hot pink here. I keep some in a pot so I can be assured the flowers are selfed and I just collected seed Friday if anyone wants some.
