By crossing Nerine Bowdenii and Amaryllis Belladona to produce the amarine you get a flower that is as a nerine but with darker broader petals of pink which are quite superb. They are easy to grow and are best suited for free draining, gritty soils that are in semi to full sun. The flowers will appear in late autumn and are long lasting. Cultivate the soils well before planting the bulbs,in heavier soils add plenty of grit to provide the drainage.
Aspect: Semi to full sun.
Soil type: All free draining soils in the sunnier parts of the garden.
