More Information
Botanical Pronunciational-stre-MEE-ree-uh
LorePeruvian lilies are native to the rich soils of the mountain regions of South America, in Chile and Brazil. The introduction of the alstroemeria to Europe has been credited to 18th century botanist, Claus von Alstroemer of Sweden, hence the botanical name. Alstroemeria make excellent cut flowers, and are symbolic of friendship and devotion--making them ideal for wedding bouquets.
Average Size at MaturityQuickly reaches 12 to 15 in. tall and wide.
Bloom TimeBlooms continuously, from early spring to fall.
Design IdeasPlant in classical urns or terra cotta pots. Gang them in window boxes and trough planters. Equally happy in the garden where its versatility fits a variety of garden styles. Takes on a traditional cottage garden character when integrated into perennial borders. A valuable source of flower color in tropical gardens too heavy on foliage plants. Spot into foundation plantings at high traffic areas to appreciate the stellar flowers. A perfect cutting garden candidate.
