Erik,

Wisley is always a pleasure to visit, even photographically. Great amount of interest there at the moment, obviously. Nerines, especially, caught my eye as there seems to be some quite dark cultivars which seemed different to me. Of course, the alpine house is always a pleasure with many treasures to view. The apples would have interested me as well. It seems to have been a very good day for you. Many thanks, enjoyed that.

Looks like Clarissa when zoomed in, though there's another label facing away.  It's not on Exbury's site but the name rings a bell.

Sorry Mark ,There were two large display areas of Nerines and as I do not grow these I did not take any particular notice of labels.
