Amarine Belladiva is a recent introduction producing impressive clusters of starry pink flowers, held on top of tall, strong stems above strap-like leaves. Originally grown for the cut flower trade, this fabulous cross between amaryllis belladonna and nerine bowdenii will reward you with spectacular, long-lasting floral displays from late summer well into autumn. Try mixing with asters, dahlias and echinaceas or grey-green leaved plants such as hostas.
Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position.
Always unpack on arrival and store in a cool place until ready to plant.
Potential problems, pests and diseases:
Amarines belladiva do not usually suffer from any serious pest problems or diseases. However, they can be affected by slugs that will enjoy munching on young shoots, stems, leaves and flowers. Watch out for damage!
