Guernsey Lily (nerine Sarniense)
Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis
Beautiful half-hardy annuals. For early flowering sowthe seed in September: for later blooms sow in February in slight
heat, pot off, affording good drainage to the plants. They are very
sensitive to cold, and should not be placed out of doors before the
end of May. Avoid over-watering, as this would prove fatal to them.
The soil should be light and sandy. Those sown in September will bloom
in the greenhouse in May; those sown in February will flower in the
open in the autumn. Height, 11/2 ft.
