Nerine bowdenii 'Alba'


Nerine bowdenii 'Alba' has pure icy white petals with just a hint pink blooming in fall.

Nerine bowdenii is a South African bulb that is a welcome sight in the fall as the skies become overcast and the rain begins to fall. At this time the flowering stalks of Guernsey lilies rise from the strap-like foliage and open into gorgeous spidery amaryllis-like flowers. 'Alba' has pure icy white petals with just a hint pink. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil or grow as a pot specimen and protect in winter.
