Codora (sometimes spelt Kodora) - don’t believe the packets in the garden centres. It is not red as per the photoshopped image the bulb companies use for this variety! Official sources suggest it is actually deep rose pink like this #nerine #nerinebowdenii #nerine-bowdenii #nerinebowdeniicodora

Not sure what happened with the photo I took of this in 2019, it’s not the same plant so I must have tagged the older one incorrectly

Evening! The last of my Nerines is in flower, 'Codora' and under polytunnel protection. These have done very well considering they were only planted this year, albeit maybe a bit later than usual! I planted three bulbs in a shallow pot, like my others, in a gritty soil. The foliage has already died back but considering how they dislike disturbance I was surprised they all flowered in their first year 😄

#nerine #nerinecodora #bowdenlilycodora - once the flowers on this fade, I’m going to stop watering completely until March. Nerine bowdenii and it’s hybrids generally start into growth in March after winter rest, grow their foliage throughout the summer before losing their leaves and then the flower buds appear in mid to late Autumn. On some cultivars the flowers will be at the tail end of the foliage timing but it will vary between them all.

This is in contrast to Nerine sarniensis which is a different species, less hardy, and tends to go through summer dormancy with no water and then starts to grow from late autumn onwards with flowers first then foliage through the winter.

So beautiful 😍😍 I dug mine up in autumn as they were planted too deep so I'll be waiting a while for the flowers. Good thing I dug them up as the soil was too wet for them. Thank you for your advice!

Also, internet pictures suggest this cultivar should be red (as was the packet) although I can’t find any validation of the colour on an official website. However, it is a recognised cultivar according to the Nerine and Amaryllid society! A few forums also suggest it’s pink not red 🤓 http://www.nerineandamaryllidsociety.co.uk/media/f7daef5e79c7bb98ffff8013ffffffd3.pdf
