Flower spotlight: alstroemeria

Alstroemeria, commonly called the Peruvian lily, is a beautiful small flower than can be used to add color and fullness to any bouquet.  There are more than 50 varieties of this beautiful flower that originated in South America. It’s sometimes called the parrot lily as well.

Each bloom is about two inches and resembles a miniature lily with a trumpet-like flower, but they grow from tuberous roots rather than bulbs like Asiatic or oriental lilies. When used in cut arrangements, these blooms can last up to two weeks. When planted in a garden, alstroemeria is a colorful, long-lasting perennial in the southern United States.
