Alstroemeria
'Jupiter'

Vibrant color and patterning of this rarely seen Alstroemeria ­– part of the ‘Planet Series’ –is out of this world! Luscious rose-violet flowers are accentuated by showy dark streaks and creamy lemon highlights.“Peruvian Lilies” make exceptional cut flowers, lasting up to two weeks in a vase ! Prolific clusters of oversized 3” flowers bloom nonstop on sturdy 3’ stems from late Spring to Fall . Lance-shaped leaves occur up and down the stems on lush plants 2-3’ wide. Disease-resistant and easy to grow , these tuberous perennials do best in fertile well-draining soil, with occasional watering and a dressing of compost in Spring. Pull the entire stem from the base of the plant when harvesting for bouquets to encourage rebloom and remove spent flowers to increase plant vigor. Grow in a cottage-style border or large container (20” or wider); stake if needed. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies galore!
