Nerine 'Cherry Ripe'*


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A luscious, tender Nerine sarniensis hybrid worth every effort to overwinter. Related to Amaryllis, this bulb is summer dormant with the leaves appearing in winter and flowering in fall. The flowers are the rich pink of promise speaking directly to the limbic brain, conjuring ancient cave responses as though confronted by sex, ripe fruit or blood. Civilization is but a thin veneer. Basic culture is plant so bulb is partially exposed and let get somewhat dry between waterings and more so when dormant.
