Alstroemeria ‘Meyer’s Rose’
at Digging Dog

Alstroemeria

Peruvian Lily

These stunning plants add an exotic touch to the border and a refined look to any flower arrangement with their elaborate blend of vividly colored and intricately marked flowers. The Lily-like blooms are borne in large heads above bushy spreading clumps of linear foliage. Thriving in well drained soil, Alstroemerias need protection from intense sun and extreme winters. Mulch heavily in colder areas or try planting in a container, bringing it into a cool garden room for the winter.

Alstroemeria ‘Meyer’s Rose’ full sun  partial shade

A lusty presentation of shiny green foliage anchors large abundant clusters of rose pink blooms, flaunting a decidedly feminine aspect. Pink and green tubular buds unfurl flared trumpets, which emphasize chartreuse bands on the outside and on the inside, a rosy mauve cast with lightly blushed patches, burgundy markings and delicate dark feathering along the edges.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' & spreading; hardy to zone 8.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week. We love Euphorbia ‘Helen Robinson’ because while the rest of the garden looks like winter, this plant looks like spring! From the robbiae side of the family, this choice, stalwart Euphorbia inherits its compact stature, shade tolerance, and handsome, stout rosettes of blunt-tipped, dark green leaves; the characias side contributes the good-sized chartreuse flower heads. In our garden, it acccompanies Anchusa with a carpet of Corydalis ‘Pere David’ skirting beneath.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
