Description

Fall in love with this truly magnificent autumn beauty, Amarine belladiva 'Aphrodite'. This breathtaking variety is a real goddess among autumn blooms, showing off a heavenly burst of soft-pink lily-like flowers on tall, stately stems. Grow this glamorous plant in your garden and look forward to its fantastic flares of showy pink blooms bringing that extra autumn panache!

Amarines are the result of a cross between Amaryllis belladonna and Nerine, with similar looks and habits to nerines, only bigger, stronger and more resilient. Fully hardy and very easy to grow, simply plant the bulbs in spring and they’ll virtually look after themselves. If you enjoy cutting fresh flowers from the garden, these long-lasting beauties are a valuable addition to any autumn bouquet.
