Beautiful flowers.

You may be familiar with the exotic flowers of Alstroemeria, or Peruvian Lily, in cut flower arrangements, but they also make great garden and container plants. When grown in sun to filtered shade in moist, well-drained, humus-rich soil they spread freely and put on a superb show. Their profuse clusters of fragrant, azalea-like, multicolored, 2 inch blooms are held upright on lily-like stems. In colder areas, mulch the roots or lift them in fall and store them buried in slightly moist sawdust or peat moss in a cool, dark place.
