Alstroemeria ‘Red’

A queen among cut flowers! With gratitude to the gracious customer who gifted us with divisions, we’re happy to introduce this tall, red Alstroemeria! STRONG stems to 2’ or more, perfect for cutting and big 3” blooms in clusters make a big impact in the garden and in bouquets. Each flower is fruit punch red with splotches of golden yellow and a smattering of black tiger stripes. To maintain simply pull bloomed out stems out at ground level as needed, or cut the entire plant to the ground and top dress with compost. Do know that these plants WILL SPREAD, so if you’re afraid of having an Alstroemeria patch locate your plant in a large container. Makes some of the longest lasting and showiest cut flowers to be had! Blooms on and off year round but heaviest in Spring. We’re uncertain if this plant has an honest cultivar name – if you recognize it, let us know!
