We had our first frosts over here, yikes !!! We had so much rain lately so everything is very wet and then wham temperatures below zero, now my garden looks so sad. In the south they even had a layer of snow !! So all I can do is looking at the pictures I made of the flowers earlier this year.
This is a bulb-plant and comes in several colours and shapes. It is a relative of the Amaryllis.
You all know the amaryllis bulb as they bloom in December, most are bright red and huge but they come in many colours.
Nerine flowers in Autumn. They are not always winterhardy, they can take cold but not wet conditions. This one is nerine bowdenii and is one of the most hardy of them all. I found this one in an arboretum I visited earlier this year.
Have a great week, keep safe cos “the beast is back”.
