It may be Monday morning but it’s the perfect time for something pretty. Janelle from Flowers by Janie is back with our “bloom of the week” series and plenty of winter wedding ideas. Today we’re featuring the Nerine Lily so if you’re a winter bride, pay close attention.
The Nerine Lily is native to South America and is a member of the Amaryllidaceae family. It is not a true lily but rather looks like a smaller versions of the Amaryllis flower with their small florets at the top of a leafless stem. The flowers come more commonly in white and pink but are also available in deep red. They grow well in rocky and arid habitats and dislike humid climates. They can be found year round as a cut flower but bloom most often in early winter. The flowers are often used in Oriental-style floral design but also look beautiful in wedding bouquets as well as wedding boutonnieres and corsage.
