Have you spotted nerine yet? As soon as summer turns into late summer, you can add the first nerines to your bouquets once more. From September onwards, more beautiful varieties are added, making autumn a colorful floral spectacle.

Like a Fairy Tale

Nerine is a bulbous flower that blooms naturally in autumn. And it does it with gusto! The color palette varies from bright white to pink – in many shades – and deep dark red. The curly petals are striking. They give off a subtle shine like they are dusted with glitter powder. Just like a fairy tale! They’re Back - Nerines - What's Your Color

Nerines Everywhere

Nerine is a must-have for colorful bouquets of cut flowers, combined with other late summer and autumn flowers and berry branches. Nerine also steals the show on its own: a single beautiful big flower stands out in a glass vase. Or arrange several nerines together in a collection of glass vases and add half-sister amarine for even more variety. Tip #1: Nerine’s romantic, feminine appearance also makes it beautiful in bridal bouquets. If you have wedding plans for late summer or autumn, be sure to put this flower on your list! Tip#2: Do you want to have Nerines in your autumn garden? Then plant bulbs in a sunny spot in the garden in April. They also thrive in pots and containers.
