Nerine “Winter Cheer” In Flower Now 2016

May 28, 2016

This week heralds the start of flowering for Nerine “Winter Cheer”. It is a true pink and stands up to blustery, rainy conditions throughout June without any sign of damage or sagging. I purchased these bulbs from David Glenn and Criss Canning at Lambley Nursery.

Nerine ‘Winter Cheer’

‘Winter Cheer’ is a very late flowering variety which flowers here at Lambley through much of June and into July. A good cut flower, its rose-pink flowers are held on 50cm tall stiff stems and are cheerful addition to a winter vase.

I buy most of my bulbs from specialist growers and Lambley would be one of the best nurseries anywhere in the country. Bulbs are strong and well-grown and shipped at the right time of the year. If you are anywhere near Ballarat on any day of the year it is worth a visit. They are dry climate specialists in the truest definition without focusing only on succulents. If you want flowers every week of the year check out their website or visit their nursery, you will not be disappointed.
