First flower on a new hybrid using pollen of Nerine rosea on a red Hybrid.
It has the form closer to N. rosea than the N. sarniensis hybrid

Thank you, Charithea. It's got the form of N. rosea and the colour of the seed parent.

Here's another hybrid. This time one I got a few years ago from someone at our garden club.
It's a pale pink hybrid, probably from N. sarniensis,

This is a fairly common nerine and is very popular as it usually is in flower on Mother's Day. It has been known as Nerine flexuosa 'Alba' but apparently it's now included in Nerine undulata.
We moved this clump here 20 years ago from my partner's mum's place after the family home was sold. It was in flower when she died and we each placed a stem of it in her coffin.

This pink nerine has flowered for the first time since it was planted many years ago - I'd planted in the shelter of a lavender bush to protect it from frost but it was only when the lavender was removed that it sent up a flower spike!

Nerine 'Ariel seedling #2' was raised in 1999 and probably from a cross with Nerine rosea.
I'm calling it 'Riversdale Red' because we lived on Riversdale Road when I raised it!

Thanks, I'm happy that it's a distinct colour change. The funny story is that I had 2 seedlings from 'Ariel' raised in 1999 this one was labelled "Seedling #2" but I never found the first seedling until last week. Years ago I'd given what I thought was a pot of 'Ariel' to a friend and when we visited her she showed me a potful of what was obviously "Seedling #1"! It's a softer coral colour and so I've told her to re-name her pots 'Riversdale Coral' ;D

Glad I'm not the only one who loses labels or gets them mixed up. Salvia cuttings are my downfall and I have been known to pass on wrongly labelled plants sometimes annoying recipients rather than pleasing them 🙄

How could anybody complain about receiving any kind of salvia? Talking of bad/wrong labelling, remember, the one I gave you a few years back labelled only as "purple" is purple-leaved and has pale pink/white flowers. I couldn't recall the name at the time but it is Salvia lyrata 'Purple Knockout'. I think it ended up in a friend's garden but I am sure it would look lovely along the edge of your raised garden where the leaves would  contrast nicely with the stone colour. I have some more if you need them. :)
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Always happy to accommodate Salvias David and hopefully it won't be too long before we can be doing some exchanges.......😊
