A nice plant David, and setting seed already.  That's early.

Thanks Ashley. The first flower head opened at least three weeks ago, maybe I started watering too soon? The plant was given to me last year as "an extreme non-flowerer"

Your Countess looks rather noble Ralph; blue blood showing 8) 
'Wolsey' is my first this year, with an opulent gold sparkle that's hard to capture. 

Added more pix with brighter sparkles but colour now too orange :-\

Lovely Nerines Ashley, Fermi and Ralph.

I might have commented before in these pages about my inability (or my garden's inability  ;)  ) to grow Nerines. Last year, following a visit to a local National Collection, I bought three N. bowdenii, in flower, and planted them in the garden, I may even have posted pictures of them. This year, apart from one or two fragile leaves, not a sausage. BUT in mid-summer I was given a sackful of Nerine bulbs, some of which I planted in the garden where they have since been subsumed by some rampant Salvias (when I get two minutes I'll have a root around and see if any of them are left) but the others I planted in large pots......... and some have flowered.

The first N. bowdenii is in flower here - Nerine bowdenii 'Alba' ex Ken Hall.

590527-0

I think by now it has a name, I seem to recall KenH was going to name it after his wife or the wife of Peter Norris.  The flowers are substantially larger than 'Bianca Perla'.  I have tried to cross the two in the hope of getting a virus-free white with no luck, a few tiny seeds were set but they did not sprout.  We shall try yet again.

That's a beautiful white N.bowdenii, John.
I don't think that I've seen a pure white here; I must ask around,

What a day, sunny and 24c, a bit steamy and the Nerines are moving quickly.

1. A promising self-sown seedling I've been watching.

2. Good colour on this one, we'll see:

Nerine PS-16-01 PS-16-02 'Quest'  x  ('Revlon' x 'Victor')-27157a

3. Smithers' cross

Nerine PS-10-05 [('Tibet' x ('Wavebush' x 'Foudroyant')-27320b)]-30707

Tried the inline full size image which worked a treat yesterday but today the pix were hopelessly scrambled.......
