Nerine `Rosea` has soft pink flowers that will unfurl reliably for decades. Plant them in clumps for best effects.
Nerines and Lycoris are the ultimate source of low maintenance autumn and winter colour. The flowers show before the foliage, allowing their beauty to shine unencumbered.
Once planted, let them lie there year after year, allowing the clump of bulbs to become overcrowded. In other words; plant, relax and enjoy the show!
Nerine bulbs love to bake in the sun, so ideally plant your bulb just under the soil surface in a sunny spot. All they need in order to flourish is a well drained soil and the occasional light application of fertiliser.
A lesser appreciated but very important benefit of Nerines and Lycoris is that the different varieties flower at different times. This means that if you plant a range of these bulb varieties, you can enjoy splashes of colour from February until winter every year.
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.
14cm/6” = 3 bulbs
20cm/8” = 6 bulbs
25cm/10” = 9 bulbs
