Nerines (Guernsey Lilies)
Nerines, (also known as Guernsey Lilies), are closely related to hippeastrum and are a member of the Amaryllidaceae family. Nerines are native to South Africa.
The nerine’s stem is long and without any leaves. The delicate, funnel shaped flowers grow at the very top and look very pretty when used in wedding flowers and bouquets.
Nerines are available as a cut flower on the wholesale flower markets and are sold in wraps of 10 or 20 stems.
