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.

Always on the lookout for a cheerful yellow flowering Alstroemeria, we were delighted to find this exceptional cultivar at Wisley Botanical Gardens outside of London. The blooms are golden yellow inside, decorated with striking burgundy lines, while the outer petals are like a watercolor sunset, each with a deep purple blotch and pink and mauve tones that fade toward the tip.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 3' high x 2' & spreading; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience.
