Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The Red Nerine Lily makes a bold, dramatic statement with fire-engine red blooms. Planted in spring, it blooms for you in the fall, when most other flowers are finished. Describing this South African beauty, one English writer says each stem opens 10 or 12 flowers with petals that are curled like gift ribbons.' The name Nerine is pronounced na-reen'-ee.

There are several South African native species of this bulb, a close relative of the Crinum Lily and the Amaryllis. In Europe, this one is sometimes called Jersey Lily, since it is associated with the famous English actress. Lily Langtry, who was born in Jersey..

Nerines like plenty of sun and not much (if any) fertilizer. Remember, South African bulbs are usually used to gritty, fast-draining soils.'
