Perhaps the oldest surviving Nerine hybrid (and not yet riddled with virus, so there has to be a question mark hovering over it). Originally it was seedling of N.sarniensis and N.undulata raised by Mansell and distributed from 1875 but the hybrid has been repeated frequently so this may not be the original seedling (many others have been named).
That's enough cold water to pour on the romance of history, let's put on a happy face and assume it is the real thing and revel in its magnificence.
