Alstroemeria Indian Summer

Peruvian Lily

Alstroemeria Indian Summer

OUT OF STOCK
Commonly called the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas, Alstroemeria are the ideal border and patio plant and our variety Indian Summer is no exception. The prolific flowering and upright plant grows to 60-70cm but remains compact. The stunning orange and yellow bi colour flowers are produced from early summer through to November and contrast beautifully with the dark foliage. Ideal for cut flowers, this Peruvian Lily is a favourite with florists as the flowers last several weeks in a vase. Supplied as giant UK-grown 5cm jumbo plug plants.

Any well drained, fertile soil.

Pruning

Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.

Unpack immediately upon arrival and give them a little water if needed. If potting up into containers, use a balanced compost (that is not too peaty) as it is inclined to produce a hard crust if allowed to dry. We recommend a John Innes Compost No 2.
Water freely during the growing season and make sure to dead-head regularly to prolong flowering.
