  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing to average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Flower colour: mixed shades of pink, rose-red, yellow and apricot
  • Other features: excellent cut flowers; contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    Producing a mass of multi-coloured, funnel-shaped flowers throughout summer, these showy perennials will slowly spread to form good-sized clumps if they are planted in a sheltered spot. The flowers are excellent for cutting and will be long-lasting in a vase, so it is worth planting a few more than you need for the border.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs outside 20cm deep and 30-45cm apart after frost, or into pots under glass at any time. After flowering cut back the faded flower-stems, but make sure you always wear gloves when working with Peruvian lilies, as contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation. Newly planted Alstroemerias should be given a very generous 20cm (8") deep mulch of chipped bark in their first winter to help the plants become established. In subsequent autumns, provide a dry mulch of bracken or bark chippings will help protect the crowns.
