With their large, brightly streaked 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 with the flowers that come in tropical shades of orange, pink and coral. 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 quality bulbs supplied. Flowers June to August. Height 45cm.
Delivery October throughout November

Alstromeria can be planted in groups at approx 10cm deep in any well drained fertile soil. Occasionally no top growth is made in the first season until the roots become established.
