Alstroemeria

Peruvian Lily

These stunning plants add an exotic touch to the border and a refined look to any flower arrangement with their elaborate blend of vividly 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 it into a cool garden room for the winter.

Alstroemeria ‘Rachel’ full sun  partial shade

A prized outcome from the late Fred Meyer’s efforts to improve upon a group of European Alstroemeria hybrids, ‘Rachel’ is named after former nursery owner Judy Wigand’s granddaughter, and is renown for her tidy, compact stature and pretty purple blooms. Eye catching lemon-yellow shades give a sunny lift, while snazzy maroon dashes and dark violet splotches enhance the good-sized flower clusters.

Atop a short and shiny, thickset foliar clump that’s quite hardy, the sumptuous orchid shades look especially boisterous when matched with other Alstroemerias such as ‘Yellow Friendship’ and ‘Princess Victoria’.

Blooms June – August.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" & spreading; hardy to zone 8.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
