I find it amazing that Nerine undulata blooms for such a long time.   
It began well before Christmas and has two buds still to open. The  
first flower has formed seeds, but even so, each flower remains in  
good condition for a long time.

Last year I noted that it was in bloom for December, January and  
February, but I don't think it was for the whole of each of those  

Next year I will try to remember to make a note of the actual day it   
opens its first flower, as I'm curious as to how long it flowers.

It is in a small pot in my unheated greenhouse which usually maintains  
the same temperature as outside but doesn't freeze.  So it is usually  
about 5C all winter.  (about 40F).
