Nerine laticoma

Nerine

Plant Type:

BULBS

Nerine laticoma (ex: Ellen Hornig) – Late summer / fall bloom here, the pink and sometimes white flowers occur atop inflorescences 6 to 12 inches tall on this shorter species. Petals sport a darker mid-vein setting-off each dome of pink, demanding a bit more notice. Nerine laticoma is found on the Northern Cape, western Transvaal, Free State, inland Namibia and Botswana. As with all the Nerines we offer summer moisture is a good thing within reason as long as bulbs are planted in a well-draining mix. Drier winter conidtion is advised. The addition of silica when planting may be helpful. We have found all of our Nerine fairly easy-going. Established pot grown bulb from offset or seed.
