Nerine 'Winter Sun' or 'Wintersun'
« on: September 07, 2009, 09:40:39 PM »
This was given to me recently. It's obviously autumn flowering but has a name that suggests winter flowering. The flower stem to the top of the flowers is 22 inches 56cm. The leaves are green and show no sign of going over.

Does anyone know it?

Hello Mark,

Did 'Winter Sun' survive last winter for you? I'm interested, as I've just bought a plant of it from the Jacques Amand stand at the Malvern RHS Show.  I've been asking around, and it has been suggested that it is a hybrid between N. undulata & N. bowdenii (the more commonly grown 'Pink Triumph' has the same parentage, as does the rather rare 'Lord Grenfell').
