Yes Umar Sahab They do bloom in Islamabad. I got them from Awan garden centre F-8 Markaz, Islamabad around 2 months back. Now Mash Allah monsoon rains have helped break its dormancy and it has started growing. Indeed Nerines are the most beautiful of all the fall flowering bulbs. And if you are fortunate enough to get your hands on Nerine Sarniensis, u'l forget everythng from Amaryllis to daylillies !
Nerine hybrids are very rare through out the world and it is not available anywhere in Pakistan.
I once tried a few Crocusis, dutch ones. But they rotted probably due to late planting and over watering. Never gave them a 2nd chance. If you are interested in growing them u must try White Saffaron Crocus. Very beautiful flowering + free saffaron!
P.S Saffaron is one of the most expensive spice in the world !
