Alstroemeria, or Peruvian Lily is a tall perennial plant native to South America. Dr. Salters Mixture produces beautiful long-lasting blooms atop tall, straight stems that reach a height of approximately 32”. They produce clusters of multi-colored azalea-like exotic blossoms that are often streaked or spotted in colors that range from white, golden-yellow, apricot, pink, red, and violet. A favorite among florists due to their long vase life of two weeks, these profuse bloomers will bring you beautiful flowers year after year.

The Peruvian Lily spreads by underground rhizomes producing a greater array of plants with each passing season. They make great border flowers and are a wonderful companion plant to low-growing herbaceous perennials. Other plants to consider as neighbors in your garden are chrysanthemums and salvias.

Alstroemeria’s colorful blooms attract butterflies, hummingbirds and ladybugs. Not only are they beautiful to admire as they flit from one flower to the next, in the process they are pollinating plants, causing flowers to bloom and trees to bear fruit. Ladybugs are considered a natural pest control that will eat aphids, chinch bugs, asparagus beetle, spider mites and whiteflies, to name a few.

When placing in a vase, consider combining these petite blossoms with larger, hardier blooms such as roses, peonies and tulips for a stark contrast. Their vast array of shades makes it easy to create contrasting bouquets of blue and yellow flowers or similar hues of blue and violet. Keep in mind that Peruvian Lilies are a thirsty flower so be sure and check their vase often.

Sowing The Seed

Peruvian Lily seeds will need to undergo a period of stratification and can be placed in the fridge for a good 2 to 4 weeks prior to sowing. After this process of stratification is achieved, the seeds can then be nicked or scarred. Begin sowing your seeds indoors, in peat pots, 8 to 10 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow at a depth of 1/4” under topsoil. Transplant when the weather is warm & all danger of frost has passed.

Growing Conditions

Alstroemeria will thrive in areas of full sunlight to partial shade. Temperatures should be kept at around 70F to 75F for optimal growth. The soil should be rich in organic matter and also well drained. To improve drainage, mix a light compost in areas that contain hard compact soil. Water daily so that the soil is kept moist until germination occurs.

Germination & Growth

Your Peruvian Lily seeds will begin to sprout within 7 to 28 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a short height of roughly 24 to 32 inches tall and can be spaced roughly 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Dr. Salter’s Mixture produces beautiful multicolored blooms. Greatly used as a cut flower in bouquets and floral arrangements.
