Dear all,
  We just had a light frost here (-2-3°C), which was a good test of the
frost hardyness of the flowers. All are planted in the open ground:
Afterglow (Exbury hybrid): flowers gone, Manselli hybrid (cross N.flexuosa
with N sarniense) flowers intact, N bowdenii 'Pink Triumf' flowers intact.
The flowerbuds and flowers of N undulata  are untouched. No leafdamage at
all. (Just to compare the  intesity of the frost: The Dahlia imperialis:
flowes and leaves are touched but not scorched)
I specially recommend the Nerine manseilli hybrid as a garden plant.

Kind greetings
