Maggi,
Every 3 to 5 years - this seems to work fine!

I got these bulbs from Will Ashburner  a lot of years ago, in 1998, as seeds.  Initially we called them Nerine filifolia, but more recently I started calling them Nerine filamentosa.  I see that  Graham Duncan does not use that name  in his recent book, "The Amaryllidaceae of Southern Africa" and these bulbs seem to me to resemble the flower form of Nerine macmasteri, in that the rolled-back petals and sepals extend no more than about half the overall length of the filaments and style.    The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families at Kew  < https://wcsp.science.kew.org/qsearch.do > considers it valid,

Nerine filamentosa W.F.Barker, Fl. Pl. South Africa 15: t. 569 (1935).
and
Nerine macmasteri G.D.Duncan, Amaryllidaceae S. Africa: 548 (2016).

It is clearly different from Nerine filifolia, which I have and which is just starting to open its first flower buds.   Might these bulbs be N. macmasteri?

This is another dwarf Nerine species that came to me under a mistaken name.  It was labeled Nerine gibsonii, which it sadly is not.  I am calling it Nerine angustifolia at the present, and it seems to look closer to that species than to any other.

652075-0

My physical measurements for this plant are as follows:

Leaves:  4 to 10  in number; 1 - 2 mm wide; 30 - 40 cm long;
Flowers: 
    Peduncle ht. 17 - 19 cm;
    Pedicels 17 - 20- mm long;
    Flowers 3 to 10 per umbel;
    Petal width 2 - 4 mm
    Diameter 25 - 30 mm (petals tip to tip)

My garden name for this accession, which I got in 2002 from Den Wilson,  is "Den's Dwarf."

I've struggled without success  with Nerines for quite a few years and then a couple of years ago a friend gave me a few bulbs and I bought a few more on a visit to the local National Collection holder. Some from the garden today in a short period without rain this morning before the heavens opened again. The first picture also shows a healthy clump of dandelions (now removed).

Nerine bowdenii is blooming, and the first variety to bloom this year is "Koen's Hardy" from a cut flower nursery in the Netherlands. This one is hardy outdoors over winter in Mr. Koen's fields, if he does not want to dig them in early winter after flowering. I tried them outdoors in the field here in central Indiana a couple of winters, and I had about an 80-90% loss each winter. Now I grow them in pots and they spend the winters inside a greenhouse. That's where they are now, and blooming. My #1425.

A seedling in flower this week,  "Nerine 1st Seedlings / largest bulbs SPS-X19".  Not bad for a first flowering, 11 flowers in an umbel.  Perhaps it will improve.

Going into the 11th week of Nerine flowerings.  Today 2 notable ones from seed, the first is Nerine PS-09-14   ['David Lionel'  x  ('Bagdad' x 'Pantaloon')-25519a], a very strong hot orange with 12 flowers in the umbel at first flowering - a lot of promise in this one. This photo is the closest to its true colour and then really only in the flowers at the very bottom of the shot, seems to be highly reflective.

The second is from the first seed lot Sir Peter Smithers sent me in 1992, it has consistently flowered with 10 flowers per stem.  It's a very soft salmon with very good sparkling.

Our first frost tonight will end the magificent autumn colours about. (it appears the dusting of snow  - now gone - did not disrupt the dispays on Enkianthus and Acer palmatums!)
