Alstroemeria 'Meyer's Hybrids'
Meyer's Hybrid Alstroemeria
|This popular florist's choice makes an excellent perennial plant in Zones 7 through 10. Although species and hybrids vary in hardiness, all plants produce large clusters of azalealike flowers in bright orange, yellow, pink, lilac, rose, milky white, or red. Thrive in deep, cool, moist soil, but tolerate well-draining clay soils. Watch for fleshy but easily breakable roots when planting. Slow to establish. Eventually form large clumps which should not be disturbed. Divide with care in spring, and plant 6 to 8 inches deep. May cause skin irritation.
These hybrids are evergreen in mild climates and have a long blooming season if old flowering stems are cut. Water through summer for continuous bloom.
