These unique-looking flowers are late summer, early fall bloomers. Ideal for containers and they pair nicely with their pink sisters, Nerine bowdenii.
Commonly known as the Guernsey Lily, Nerine bowdenii is a very popular cut flower. Expect the long lasting pink clusters to appear at the end of the growing period (Sept - Oct) when the foliage has almost withered. Nerine bowdenii can be grown in gardens in zones 8-10 and in any zone if put in a container and moved indoors over the winter. Containers should be brought indoors to a cool, brightly lighted location in winter.
One advantage of growing these bulbs in containers is that they like to be crowded and will blossom more freely when crowded together in a pot or container. Be sure to repot every four to five years.
