Product Specification

'Ostara' is a wonderful shell-pink hybrid - a robust autumn-flowering bulb that in the right conditions will thrive to produce an impressive display at a time of year when colour can be lacking. This is the hardiest of all the Nerines. The deeper-pink form originates on moist mountainside slopes in South Africa in regions where the summers are moist and the winters are dry so to get the best results plant in a well-drained sunny position and give extra water during the summer. The leaves will appear from late spring and 12 to 18" flowers stems will appear in mid to late-autumn, each bearing 7 or more faintly-scented flowers with narrow, recurved petals. Rich soil at the base of a sunny wall is ideal - don't forget to add grit under the bulbs and apply a thick mulch in winter. PLANTING TIPS - The long, narrow bulbs should be planted with tips showing through the surface of the soil. They are often best started in tall rose pots with the bulbs planted close together, and then planted in the border once the pot is fully rooted. Whilst in pots keep the Nerines frost free.
