Harder to spell than to grow, Alstroemerias offer some of the best high gratification to low perspiration ratios around! Gloriously large flowered and TALL (to 3-4'), long, strong stems make them an iconic cut flower, lasting a couple of weeks in a vase. A hummingbird favorite, extra large flowers also boast showy nectar guides that lure bees and butterflies to their bounty.
Easy and carefree in almost any soil – although you'll get a crazy EXPLOSION of bloom in rich soil with regular water and adequate drainage – they'll spread to a 3-4' wide colony over time (or grow them in a large container if you don't have room for them to spread out). Long-blooming late Spring to Fall, they're heat tolerant, long-lived, disease and deer resistant and hardy to USDA zone 7. Maybe for the first time ever – all four of our favorite varieties are ready at once!
