NERINE, STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
The story goes that the flowers drifted on the seas from South Africa, eventually washing up on the shores of the island of Guernsey. It was this ocean voyage that
earned the flower its name: ‘Nerine’, in a reference to the 50 beautiful daughters of the sea-god Nereus. The flower is also known as the Guernsey Lily in the UK.
The Nerine is a distinctive bulbous plant with a characteristically pure and feminine beauty: prettily shaped flowers with ribbons of silver and gold adding an extra
shimmer to their petals. They are a fragile yet intense symbol of union, straight from the heart.
As cut flowers in a vase, nerines can serve as stunning interior decoration in the home.
