Nerine masonorum (Miss Mason's Nerine) - Tufts of slender grass-like leaves emerge from this bulb just before the flowers bloom in the summer and fall. Most of the year the plant just looks like a little green grass or carex, clumps growing up to about 9" tall and 12" wide. The bright pink flowers have dark stamens and wavy petals and are reminiscent of miniature Amaryllis blooms. Plant in sun or part shade and water regularly. It is hardy to about 20 degrees F.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Nerine masonorum.
