Nerine is a genus of the Amaryllis family from South Africa with about 30 species. The name Nerine, is from that of the water nymph by the same name.
Nerine masonorum, unlike most other Nerine is evergreen in mild climates. In late
summer, from the tufts of slender grass-like leaves and arising only 8 to 10 inches are the beautiful pink flowers with wavy dark centered petals. Plant in sun or part shade and water infrequently or more regularly to maintain foliage.
The planting shown above is in front of the San Marcos Growers office. Many people are surprised when what they thought was a grass planting is suddenly covered with the beautiful and delicate flowers.
