Hi all,

The first bulb of Nerine angulata is blooming here.  I've posted an image 
to the list.  The flowers are light pink and 
span about 45 mm (ca. 1.75 inches) across the face.  The bulb came from 
Cameron and Rhoda McMaster, and I think it is about 4 years old.  I've also 
posted a picture of it in my Photo Gallery at

These are said to be quite reliable blooming once they reach flowering 
size.  We also have found that N. filifolia is a most reliably blooming 
plant.  My oldest bulbs, 5 in one 2-gallon pot, are putting up 5 scapes as 
I write.

I have planted a few bulbs of N. angulata out in the rock garden, to test 
their winter hardiness here.  I have a couple bulbs of N. krigei and of 
Nerine 'Pink Triumph' in the same rock garden.  Next summer, I'll let 
everyone know how these tests turns out!
