Flower Portrait: Guernsey Lily

(please click to enlarge)

nerine-(8)

Guernsey lilies or Nerine Bowdenii bear beautiful pink blooms on sturdy stems at a time when flowers are scarce. Best planted in clumps for a dramatic late season display, the flowers can be cut for indoors. Also available in colours ranging from white to deep-pink.

Nalinki at Angles and Views has started #flowersoverflowers where we can share our favourite blossoms of the week. It seems like a good idea to spread some blooms across the Internet. I am more than happy to join in.

    Ah, Jude! You know how to gladden an old bird’s heart 🙂
    We have some of these in our garden too. Probably not looking quite so good as these.

      Fabulously sparkly ones too! Though they are not as hardy.

      1. They always take me by surprise in the gardens during winter, but it’s a delightful surprise 🙂
