Autumn is a wonderful time for Nerines. First the scarlet Nerine fothergilli “Major”, then the main showing of grass-leaved Nerines (N. filifolia and N. masoniorum) and the “standard” N. bowdenii. Then the various smaller varieties such as N. bowdenii “Armandi” and the superb N. undulata “Alba”, finishing up with the showiest hybrids such as “Cranfield” shown below.

Nerines are a Bulbous member of the Amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae) with a flower stem that rises about 30cm above strap-like leaves.
