Nerines are a native of South Africa. These plants produce flowers with six narrow curly petals in pink and sometimes white, red or orange. The leaves are strap-like which appears with or after the flowers. Other species of Nerines are Bowden Cornish lily or Japanese spider lily.
The vertical form of nerines makes it perfect for contemporary arrangements. It also makes excellent handtied bouquets while individual florets can be used as corsages.
Nerines have a sweet fragrance and long vase life. The long flowering stalks enable Nerine flowers to be used in tall displays. Nerines look fantastic with other late flowerers like dahlias, rudbeckia, eryngium and echinacea.
