That sounds like a dramatic display, one not easily reduced to reproduction
of the images.

By the way, at what time of year, do these sarniensis forms and hybrids

begins here in mid-September, peaking in October. This year they are rather

The RHS at Wisley (UK) has an interesting display of Nerines at present.
Each plant is in a black recess in a wall finished with a gilt frame, and
