Plant details

Most nerines are tender greenhouse bulbs, but N. bowdenii is the nearest to being hardy, and well worth planting outdoors in a warm sunny border backed by the shelter of a wall. In colder gardens, give them all the sun and shelter available, plant in bold groups and be prepared to protect them over winter. Unlike the usual pink nerines, 'Stephanie' has delicate pale blue flowers in late summer to early autumn.
