Prolific, magenta pink blooms for many months. A nice choice for gardens, and their compact growth will also work well in pots (just don’t forget to water and feed them).
Flowers galore, who could ask for anything more? These Dwarf Peruvian Lilies will bring months of beautiful blooms to the garden – beginning in spring or early summer depending on where you live, they will keep on going right up to frost. You can pick them to fill your vases and there will still be enough to brighten your beds. Each bloom is 5-7cm across.
When growing Inca Peruvian Lilies it is important to ensure they are fertilised well. They grow quickly and flower profusely, so need to be well fed. We recommend a slow release fertiliser in late winter and spring. Or you could add a liquid fertiliser on a regular basis over their flowering period.
Water in well, then we recommend keeping moist during active growth. As they establish they become dry tolerant - their fleshy root system keeps a reserve of moisture. Well drained, humus rich soil conditions are best. Ideally, mulch in spring to protect the root system and help retain moisture.
Our tip - when you pick the stems it is best to twist then pluck them from the base to encourage more growth. We also advise this method when pruning spent flowers and foliage.
In the language of flowers the Alstroemerias signify friendship and devotion.
