La nérine, cette Amaryllidacée d’Afrique du Sud, est parfois appelée Lys de Guernesey, car elle abonde sur l’île anglo-normande. Elle demeure pourtant assez méconnue, sans doute en raison de sa faible résistance au gel. C’est une haute bulbeuse de terres sableuses voire arides. On peut l’adopter sans risque en bord de mer ou la cultiver en pot, où sa floraison fait merveille en fin d’été.
