A pure white selection of N.sarniensis.

White Nerine are different in the sense that the flowering time differs by a few weeks,
the height varies a little and the number of flowers in the head can vary. Some might say that the
individual flowers differ in their shape.
It is probably all true, but a white Nerine is a white Nerine. Every breeder
since Alexander the Great (why would you call anybody great unless they bred Nerine ?)
has named a white cultivar to satisfy their curiosity. I wonder how many have felt the need to
name any more?
If someone raises a plant with a flower the size of a nun's head then it deserves to be named
as long as it has a strong enough neck - nobody needs another nodding nun!
(And if you were still wondering, I write this nonsense when I have spent and hour researching a cultivar
and found nothing of any significance. )
