These stunning plants add an exotic touch to the border and a refined look to any flower arrangement with their elaborate blend of vivaciously colored and intricately marked flowers. The Lily-like blooms are borne in large heads above bushy spreading clumps of linear foliage. Thriving in well-drained soil, Alstroemerias need protection from intense sun and extreme winters. Mulch heavily in colder areas or try planting in a container, bringing them into a cool garden room for the winter.
Blushed with a medley of lovely old-fashioned pinks, this beauty came to us from a U.C. Davis college professor years ago. Its jungle-like foundation of handsome foliage culminates in rose-hued flowers warmed by butter yellows, creamy streaks and dark wine-colored markings. Claret brush strokes and just a hint of green engrave the petals’ exterior.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" & spreading wide.
