A member of the Amaryllis Family from Africa, Nerine Bowdenii has the characteristic amaryllis form—a clump of bladed foliage that sends up 24- to 30-inch flower stalks or scapes topped with a circle of outward-facing, 2- or 3-inch blossoms. The plant is valued for its overall exotic form, and the blossoms for their extremely vibrant lavender-pink coloring. Nerines can be grown in the garden border where they bloom late summer into fall. Most often they are grown in pots and used for special accents on sunny porches or patios.
Our melons grew across each other and we ant to be sure we have Ginger Pride correctly identified. Ours are heavily netted and huge. Dark green at the point (around 80 days from sprouting) Some of the photos of GP are round and less netted. We need help in identification.
