They are bulbous perennials. They produce spherical umbels of lily-like flowers in shades from white through pink to crimson. The leaves are threadlike and strap-shaped. Each flower is usually consisting of six narrow tepals. Nerine lily bulbs are not hardy below 38 degrees F. (3 C.), so you should check your gardening zone before planting. You can also treat them as annuals but rather than waste these lovely flowers, pull the bulbs and overwinter them. Growing instructions for Nerine lilies are similar to most summer blooming bulbs.
