Nerine “Cranfield” – Guernsey Lily

Bulbous member of the Amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae) with a flower stem that rises about 30cm above strap-like leaves. Improbably pink lily-like flowers with wavy edged petals and purple anthers on pink stamens.

Nerines play something of a second fiddle to Amaryllis in Karin’s Garden. They offer a more delicate delight than their bigger cousins. However, they are a so striking when you see them and they are a special feature in our personal garden. Many of the Nerines in Karin’s Garden are either the standard Nerine bowdenii or the red-flowered Nerine sarniensis, so it is a little special when you come across choice cultivars such as “Cranfield”.
