Nerine undulata

provided by wikipedia EN

Nerine undulata syn. N. crispa is a species of flowering plant in the subfamily Amaryllidoideae of the family Amaryllidaceae, that is native to the eastern Cape of South Africa.[3] Growing to 45 cm (18 in) tall, it is a bulbous perennial with narrow grasslike leaves that are almost evergreen,[4] and umbels of 8-12 slender, crinkled pale pink or mid-pink flowers 5 cm across in autumn.

The Latin specific epithet undulata means “wavy, undulating”, in reference to the crinkled tepals of the flowers.[5]

A white-flowered cultivar, N. undulata (Flexuosa Group) ‘Alba’, has been given the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.[6][7] It is hardy in mild or coastal areas of the UK, but requires a sunny, sheltered spot.
