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.

Hi John,
I was told a while ago by a nerine breeder that the problem with Nerine bowdenii is that its hybrids are sterile so breeding lines aren't possible. I haven't used it myself because it struggles in this garden! I got one recently and it flowered and I put some pollen on it so will have to see for myself!
cheers

a note I wrote:  interspecific crosses are often sterile but produce fertile pollen.
I did not write the source.

I crossed N undulata with N bowdenii Edelweiss but the seeds did not germinate

This hybrid came from someone at our garden club at one of our Swaps Days.
I've planted it at the base of an apple tree to afford it some protection,

Nerine flexuosa 'Alba' is apparently now included in Nerine undulata but not in our garden 😁

Yes, Ashley, and usually in flower on Mother's day so especially nice.
Here's another "reclassified" one - we got it as Nerine crispa but it's apparently also included in Nerine undulata.
It's flowering along with N. 'Afterglow' which is supposed to be a N. bowdenii hybrid,

This pink nerine had not flowered since it was planted here a long time ago until this season!

A nice one, Ashley. Its wide petals are quite unusual in the genus.
