All about the Nerine

As autumn approaches, it's time for Nerine, also known as the Cliff Lily. This bulbous flower is gorgeous and super strong.

The Nerine is a real autumn beauty. At the grower, the bulbs go into the ground in spring so that the Nerine can shine with its characteristic flowers in autumn. Striking are the petals that curl gracefully. The pink Nerine is the best known, but there are also white, red and salmon-coloured ones. The flowers have something fairy-like; as if dusted with glitter powder. If you cut the bulb, you can see the flower buds for years to come.

The Nerine symbolises connection, joy, security and affection. Originally, the Nerine comes from South Africa. The explanation of its name is fairy-tale: the Nerine is said to owe its name to the fifty beautiful daughters of the ancient sea god Nereus, also called sea nymphs or nereids.
