Most nerines are tender greenhouse bulbs, but Nerine bowdenii is the nearest to being hardy, and well worth planting outdoors in a warm sunny border backed by the shelter of a wall. They are South African bulbs, widely planted in warmer regions for their late display of rich pink flowers. Nerine bowdenii ‘Kathleen Pollock’ has striking red flowers. It works well in a mixed herbaceous border and makes an excellent cut flower.
For best results grow Nerine bowdenii ‘Kathleen Pollock’ in well-drained soil in full sun, ideally sheltered by a south-or west-facing wall. Divide congested clumps in spring.
