Amarine is a bigeneric hybrid between an Amaryllis and a Nerine, forming beautiful clusters of open-mouthed, lily-like flowers of pastel pink. This variety is smaller than an amaryllis but produces larger trumpet shaped blooms than a Nerine. Impressive strap-shaped leaves are thick and lush, making this a highly desirable variety. Amarine are best suited to flower beds and borders within a cottage, courtyard or informal garden style. You should expect to see Amarine grow to an approximate height and spread of between 10-50cm (4-20”).
Amarine are best planted in well-drained soil of sand, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Plant in a sunny position, digging a shallow hole with the pointed end of the bulb showing just above the soil surface. This variety is also great for planting in containers. After planting, water well to settle the soil into place.
Make sure you protect your bulbs from harsh winter conditions, applying a deep dry mulch over the colder months. Provide a generous amount of water during prolonged periods of drought, taking care not to overwater which will cause the bulbs and roots to rot.
