Commonly known as Bowden Lily, Nerine bowdenii has lily-like pink flowers with recurved segments. This native of South Africa flowers during the autumn over strap-like green foliage.

Bowden Lily needs a sheltered area in the sun with a well-drained soil. This bulbous perennial pops up during the autumn just as everything else is dying away, to show off its spectacular blooms before it to dies back naturally for the winter. Ideal for a Mediterranean themed garden as well as for coastal locations.
