The Chinese name for this autumn beauty translates to `suddenly the earth smiles`. You will also smile when these golden blooms emerge. 4-5 flowers per stem.

Nerines and Lycoris are the ultimate source of low maintenance autumn and winter colour. The flowers of show before the foliage allowing their beauty to shine.

Nerine and Lycoris bulbs love to bake in the sun so plant your bulb just under the soil surface in a sunny spot. 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! All they need is a well drained soil and the occasional 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 will enjoy splashes of Nerine and Lycoris colour from February until winter every year.
