Nerine Alba (Nerine) – 1 pc. – is an extraordinary perennial originating from South Africa that blooms in the second half of summer. Mesh–like umbels appear at the tops of the smooth, erect, 30–50 cm high stalks in August. They consist of 5–10 small, snow–white blooms that resemble flower cups of the St. Joseph lilies. Grass–like, dark green nerine leaves that sprout from the stalk bases and bend lightly sideways also present high ornamental value.
Bulbs of this valuable plant are planted late in spring out in the field or slightly earlier into a medium–large, well drained container. The variety offered here loves sunlight and warmth, hence it feels best at a wall or hedge facing southward in open–air cultivation. The soil needs to be fertile, constantly moist, yet loosened and light it does not water–log. It looks best in larger groupings on lawns due to its extraordinary, magnificent inflorescences, but nerine works well in compositions with white and pastel–coloured lilies or ornamental grasses, too. Plants grown in pots are recommended for decorations of a bright room, balcony or terrace. Nerines must be transferred inside to a frost–safe room in autumn, before the first frosts.
The package contains 1 large Alba nerine bulb sized at least 14 cm in circumference. The most important growing instructions have been printed at each package.
