Strange but true: the plant genus nerine only occurs in Southern Africa, and nowhere else in the world – unless you plant it in your garden. You’ll certainly want to! Although most nerines are pink, Nerine bowdenii 'Alba' bucks the system, giving you white blooms that would be rare, even in their country of origin. The pure white blooms with their intricately ruffled petals are Instagram-ready, so hone your photography skills while you wait for your plants to produce those prized blooms.

Difficult to grow? No! Nerine bowdenii 'Alba' (also known as the white Guernsey Lily) are easy-going, drought, pest, and disease-resistant darlings, and unless your soil actually freezes in winter, they’ll be perfectly happy left in place after their autumn flowering season. Rare and unusual? Definitely! That’s one of the reasons why you shop with us.

Gracy knows
"Nerine bowdenii 'Alba' plants do best if grown in clumps and it may take a couple of seasons to really develop and start blooming profusely. It’s worth the wait!"
