|Lore||Peruvian 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 Maturity||Dense, mounding habit, to 9 to 12 in. tall and wide.|
