Nerine krigei is a summer growing species that grows in damp depressions in grassland. The flat, broad, erect and spirally twisted leaves are very prominent and diagnostic. The flowers are produced in summer, in contrast to the tendency of most other Nerine species that bloom in autumn. While most Nerine varieties produce many offsets but do not bloom every year, it requires a cold winter when it should be kept dry and sufficient moisture during summer for it to flower.
Plant in group for the best effect, otherwise scatter it amongst wetland grasses to get pink splashes.
