Nerine x Lycoris hybrids . . . ?

Last week I saw in  Holland  a hybrid (made in the UK) between Nerine
bowdenii and Lycoris aurea. The result was: leaves, growth pattern and
flowering time much like the Nerine; the flower form was exactly like those
in the Lycoris  subgenus Lycoris (L aurea; traubii,radiata etc) but the
colour was a surprising pale purple. A pity that the  yellow colour gene
(absent in Nerine) was not evident.
Kind regards
