Which Nerine is it?

Hi Gang,

I was given a clump of Nerines about 3 years ago; there were identified as N. 
sarniensis.  They came in the mail mostly intact and I've been giving them 
what I think they want, which amounts to dry summers and not too cold winters, 
and almost no fertilizer.  

They bloom in Januray, about 2-3 months after they leaf out.  The flowers are 
dainty and pink-lavender, about 1-inch-across or perhaps a bit larger.  After 
thinking about it I've decided they are probably not N. sarniensis.  

The flowers remind me of the ones in the link, but mine are paler and don't 
have a stripe.

I don't grow any other Nerines and I'm wondering what these bulbs are.  Maybe 
they are one of the many hybrids, but I thought N. sarniensis types produced 
larger flowers.
