About Nerine Elegance

Nerine elegance

Nerine elegance extends a warm welcome to you, whether in your home or garden. With their mother-of-pearl sheen, the flowers exude a sense of warmth and comfort. Of all the nerines, the elegance has the most lustrous petals, and its characteristically compact and even shapes when in bloom are especially beautiful. The elegance is available in the following shades: white, red and pink.

Nerine elegance in te garden

The Nerine elegance transforms your autumnal garden into an abundance of colour. The elegance thrives in calcium-rich soil (border) or in a pot (garden or balcony). Bulbs must be planted in the spring, preferably in clumps of uneven numbers. The bulbs should not be planted too deep – the necks should just protrude above the ground. Space the bulbs approximately 20 cm apart. When potting the elegance, use potting soil with a pH higher than 5.5 and an EC value of between 0.5 and 0.7.

The elegance grows best in a spot where the bulbs can benefit from the full sun whilst being sheltered from wind and rain. Apart from regularly needing fresh water, the bulbs require minimal care. They grow to approximately 60-80 centimetres in height, and bloom from September through November.

The elegance is a perennial. However, the bulb copes poorly with wintry temperatures and frost. It is therefore advisable to dig up the bulbs in November, once blooming has finished, and store them indoors. You can replant the bulbs in your borders or pots at the first sign of spring.

Nerine elegance in the home

The elegance bedazzles you with its beauty, whether arranged as a mono-floral display or in a mixed bouquet. As long as they are treated well, they are guaranteed to last for at least 12 days. Always use a clean vase containing lukewarm water and flower food. Cut the stems diagonally before placing the flowers in the water. Place the vase in the semi-shade and refresh the water regularly.
