    Orange-red petals, which have a flash of dazzling yellow and are flecked with brownish plum, form vibrant flowers that put on an eye-catching summer display. This, combined with the striking variegated foliage, makes it a very handsome plant, which looks wonderful in borders with a hot colour scheme. They also make long-lasting cut flowers, so planting more than you need is a wise investment.

  • Garden care: 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. 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.

  • May cause skin allergy
