Alstroemeria ‘Henry’s Violet’
at Digging Dog

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.

Both a florist shop’s darling and a star in the garden, ‘Henry’s Violet’ struts dandy bicolored blooms. Vivid violet-hued outer petals reveal white throats with burgundy flecks, a chartreuse dusting, flaxen highlights and several prominent magenta-laced purple blotches. Sturdy long stems and a flood of fresh green foliage support the large open-funneled flowers that cavort amid Stachys ‘Hummelo’, Salvia ‘Whirly Blue’ and Kniphofia ‘Minister Verschuur’ above our stonewall.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 3' high x 2' & spreading; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
