Looking good now
The multitude of golden black-eyed Susan is setting the Autumn Garden aglow.

Nerine bowdenii

The half-domes of individual lily-like florets of Nerine bowdenii bring an unexpected flash of bright pink to the Garden in mid November.
There is a good patch in the central monocot oval of the Systematic Beds, but those planted at the base of the south-facing Glasshouse wall are really thriving. As well as enjoying the baked and alkaline conditions, akin to the bulb's native South Africa, the placement of the group here is a good example of how we are trying to take the interior Glasshouse displays outside, so you can find the more borderline hardy and tender representative from the extraordinarily diverse South African flora in the Continents Apart house behind.

There is a beautiful glister to the lipstick pink petals and the papery sheaths on the pointed buds are also very elegant.
