The story goes that the flowers drifted on the seas from South Africa, eventually washing up on the shores of the island of Guernsey. It was this ocean voyage that earned the flower its name: ‘Nerine’, in a reference to the 50 beautiful daughters of the sea-god Nereus. The flower is also known as the Guernsey Lily in the UK.

The nerine is a distinctive bulbous plant with a characteristically pure and feminine beauty: prettily shaped flowers with ribbons of silver and gold adding an extra shimmer to their petals. They are a fragile yet intense symbol of union, straight from the heart.

When planted in spring, nerines add dashes of colour to your garden from September onwards, in subtle shades of white, pastel pinks and red. As cut flowers in a vase, nerines can serve as stunning interior decoration in the home.

The nerine family comprises numerous offspring, each with their own specific characteristics, emotions and colours. This website provides insights into three of the family members: belladonna, elegance and bowdenii. Learn more about each of them here.
