|Nerine gracilis is a dwarf species native to southern Mpumalanga province in South Africa. It has a few very narrow, thread-like leaves up to one foot long. The small pink to white flowers are carried in umbels of about 8 florets atop an 8 to 10 inch stem. The ½-inch diameter flowers have a distinctive cup shape, with the stamens shorter than the petals. It blooms in late summer, August in the Northern Hemisphere. It needs a gritty, well-drained growing medium. The pot should be in full, bright sun when the plant is growing. Water regularly during active growth.|
The habitat of Nerine gracilis is in damp depressions in shallow soil in the open. It is dormant in winter and spring, when it should be kept quite dry.
