Nerine filamentosa

28th September 2012

A summer growing Nerine found only in a small region of the Eastern Cape near Cathcart.
Slightly taller and slightly larger in flower than my plants of N. filifolia, I realised some years ago that I would not be able to distinguish them if they became mixed and while researching the botanical differences discovered that there aren't any, and N. filamentosa has recently been sunk into N.filifolia.
However - I have spent so much care in keeping them apart that I am going to continue for a little while with no justification but because I find it rather soothing.
