How to Grow Alstroemeria – Peruvian Lily

Perennials with rhizomes. On the continent the orange shades are the most hardy; in England other colours are grown as well.

Situation:

Excellent, free-flowering border plant for a sunny situation; suitable for combination with other plants. The rhizomes do not always root easily.

Soil:

The Peruvian lily requires well manured, porous soil which must never be too damp, especially in winter.

Propagation:

Mature plants can be divided in spring; they may also be grown from seed in mid spring and early summer.

Alstroemaria aurantiaca: Height 60-120 cm, with yelloworange flowers throughout summer. Well known varieties are ‘Orange King’ with large, deep-orange flowers; ‘Concolor’, orange yellow; ‘Aurea’, yellow with pink streaks; and ‘Moerheim’s Orange’, deep orange.
