For a late season blast of vibrant colour a patch of Nerine bowdenii ‘Pink Triumph ‘ is flourishing in a sheltered spot to the SE of the tropical palm house.   A white cultivar of N. flexuosa ‘Alba’ is giving a good showing in the alpine house. Both prefer a constricted grouping and a well-drained, dry situation. Also needing to bask in some warmth to ripen the bulbs for the following season‘s flowering.
