Alstroemeria flower

Alstroemeria flowers and plants, hybrids and species are readily available for sale both online and in garden centers.

Alstroemeria are regarded as being hardy to zone 8 and come in a wide range of colors from white to red, they are widely used as cut flowers.

Alstroemeria flowers are typically marked with distinct splashes of deep maroon (see picture right)

Alstoemeria are also known as the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas. With trumpet shaped alstromeria flowers much hybridized to produce a wide range in colors from white through to scarlet they are used widely as a cut flower.


Varieties

With so many cultivars available it is a little difficult to keep up with the names, a couple of our favourites are :

  • Alstroemeria Camilla is a wonderful white flowering cultivar with maroon markings in a yellow throat.
  • Alstroemeria Letizia with its bright red flower with yellow throat.

Propagation

  • The best ( and easiest) method of propagation is by division of tubers in spring.
