The larger outer petals of this gorgeous Peruvian lily or Lily of the Incas as they are commonly known, have a creamy yellow, while the cream-tipped inner petals are a clear yellow, and are variously streaked with rusty brown markings. A cheerful combination of colours makes this summer-flowering perennial a must-have for brightening the border. With their large, funnel-shaped flowers, Alstroemeria are some of the most eye-catching perennials around. Also known as the Peruvian Lily, this perennial resembles a miniature lily. Alstroemeria form spreading clumps of erect stems, bearing plenty of lance-shaped leaves that contrast well. Originating in South America, it is no surprise that these herbaceous perennials look so exotic. Their long flowering period throughout the summer and their ability to grow remarkably well in almost all types of soil makes the Peruvian Lily a gardener's dream. An ideal cut flower for summer bouquets because of their colour and long vase life, Alstroemeria make an impact when coupled with the equally unusual Agastache or Astrantia. Top Sized Bulbs supplied. Flowers June to September. Height 75cm.
