x Amarine tubergenii 'Zwanenberg Pale'

25th October 2012

The original clone of the hybrid raised by Van Tubergen and named in 1968. My plant shows no sign of virus at present, but I understand there are some problems with plants in circulation.
I keep it with the Nerine and it responds well to the same treatment unlike the Amaryllis which share the greenhouse and live in perpetual dudgeon.

I nomenclatural conviction has been rocked slightly by the realisation that I grow two distinct clones of the hybrid under the name 'Zwanenberg'. This one is the paler of the two and I am inclined to think it is not the true cultivar.
