Nerine bowdenii Nikita

OUT OF STOCK
Nerine Bowdenii Nikita is a soft pink Guernsey Lily with reflexed, wavy-edged strappy petals which provide architectural structure to the back of the border and containers. Sometimes the hot pink Nerines can seem a little too bright among displays - this milder version is ideal for those who admire the Guernsey Lily's shape and texture but want something more subtle in colour. We'd recommend planting with shorter, fuller varieties such as Oxalis or Geraniums, to really fill out the spaces betwe en those bare stems. Height 50-60cm. Top size 12cm+ bulbs.

Planting

Plant with the top of the bulb just below ground level.

Soil Type

Well drained soil

Nerine prefer to be planted in a sunny position, in fertile/well drained soil (with plenty of peat/sharp sand).
Nerines are ideal for potting up and can be introduced to the garden in April. As they are not completely hardy, we recommend to plant in pots, keep in frost-proof place and remove in to the garden in late April. Can be watered freely when growth be gins to appear but should be held back when the bulb is dormant.
