Thanks for publicising this, Maggi; I think we may have found a home (or two homes!) for the collection.

Nerine fothergilla 'Major' has been lumped into N. sarniensis but I keep it under the old name as it is distinct in my opinion; it's certainly hardier.
The first pic is from a couple of weeks ago when it first started to flower; the second is from yesterday as the last cluster starts to fade

Nerine rosea has also been subsumed by N. sarniensis which I find even less understandable

Nerine 'Ariel' is an old hybrid that I got about 40 years ago.
It comes through our winters without protection but is grown at the base of a sprawling rose.
It's flowering nicely this year

Ariel is lovely - none of mine are that colour.

Hi Diane,
I don't know the heritage of this hybrid, but I got a similar colour by crossing N. rosea and N. fothergilla 'Major', but they don't flower regularly so here's a pic from 2018

Another seedling, this one is from seed of one of the Nerine sarniensis hybrids and is a soft pastel pink,

Fermi,

Do you have a goal for your hybridizing?

My plan is to produce hardy ones I can grow outside, so I've been crossing bowdenii with various sarniensis.  I should also use undulata - it's so eager that its seedlings are in a lot of my pots.  Great excitement - my pot of Wurmbea is about to flower - oh, no.  it's just a usurping undulata.  So I think undulata needs to be banished to the garden.

Hi Diane,
most of my hybridising is random - mostly whatever is in flower at the same time.
However I'm using what I still call Nerine rosea because it is hardy here. I haven't tried using N. undulata yet - here what we used to call N. flexuosa "Alba"  is considered to be a form of N. undulata. But they usually flower in May while most of the others flower in April. I haven't got into pollen saving
cheers

Good work there Fermi.  There are some new Dutch bowdeniis that are close to that colour, as well as many good red bowdenii x sarniensis. Be interesting to get some of those genes into that hybrid to produce summer flowerers.
