This exotic-looking perennial is a welcome breath of fresh air for a waning garden at the end of summer, when most plants are past their best. The delicate Nerine Bowdenii Alba (also known as the Guernsey Lily) provides snow white curled petals with wavy edges, standing on stiff upright stems and accompanied by beams of rich green foliage. Originating from the hot plains of South Africa, Nerine Bowdenii feels most at home in a freely draining soil in full sun.
