DESCRIPTION

ALSTROEMERIA, LILY OF PERU, REDDISH PURPLE SEEDLING

This is a short purple.

Alstroemeria are from South America and are marginally hardy here in zone 7. They prefer full sun, good drainage and cool soil, this can be acheived with mulch. Not picky about pH or soil type. Blooms are very popular in the cut-flower industry as they last and last! Plants will bloom from frost to frost if the plants are kept dead-headed and watered. Hummingbirds find them irresistable! To harvest blooms, pull the stem from the ground, once plants are well rooted they can just be yanked, freshly planted plants should be carefully harvested. Alstroemeria can be damaged from late frosts, protect young plants from spring frosts.

Alstroemeria grow from rhizomes with fleshy tubers attached, plant 4-8 inches deep in well-drained soil, they prefer cool soil and regular water, mulch to keep the soil cool. Bloom production will slow down during hot weather.

ZONE 7 WITH MULCH

Alstroemeria grow from rhizomes and produce fleshy tubers also. Plant alstroemeria with the buds upward and the tubers downward, this can be difficult to determine, planting horizontally and shallow will work, the plants will find their proper depth as they grow.

1 LARGE, WELL ESTABLISHED, PLANT GROWING IN A 1 GALLON POT, SHIPPED BARE-ROOT IN FALL.
