Nerine bowdenii


From the drakensberg mountains in South Africa, this must be one of the best autumn bulbs for prolonged colour throughout autumn. After a dry summer, in full sun, the flower spikes start emerging after the first late summer thunderstorms. The flowers open in succession, and last for weeks on end, from late august to late november. The plant is fully hardy, and survived -12°c with me this winter, with a thick cover of dead leaves. Nice bulbs available, all of which have flowered already, although they often need a year to establish.
