Hi Jim and all,

Congratulations on all the bloomings. Nerine is a wonderful genus.
Everything must look so fantastic in your greenhouse now. Would you take
some photos of N. laticoma for the wiki?

Nerine season in the Bay Area is long this year. The first to start was N.
bowdenii followed by N. humilis about a month ago and now N. pudica is
blooming. The strangest thing is that N. sarniensis hybrids have just sent
up scapes and the first flower opened about 5 days ago. The late season this
year is probably due to the late dormancy. These plants still had leaves in
late June and probably even July.
