Nerine sarniensis outdoors?

Hi Diane,

I’ve been growing N. Sarniensis in my front yard in Portland for about five years, and it blooms regularly. I’ve seen a couple others blooming in the neighborhood, so I suspect it’s not too fussy about specific growing conditions. Climate conditions are more extreme here than where you are, as I’m sure you’re aware, with hotter/drier summers, colder winters, so I expect you’ll do fine if you plant a few outside there. Good luck!
