Alstroemeria or Peruvian Lilies are beautiful flowers that resemble miniature lilies, yet are characterized with angelic color combinations such as: white, pink, green, lavender, purple, yellow, orange, salmon, hot pink and red. They typically bloom in the late spring and summer months. They are a symbol of friendship and devotion, making them a gorgeous choice for any occasion. They also make excellent gifts. They are usually grown in Colombia and Ecuador. When they arrive they are usually closed and droopy requiring three to four days to open. What makes them unique is their beautiful solid colors on the outside and speckled stripes on the inside, although not every variety has them. The color they have on the outside, when closed, is not the color chosen that is on the inside, so don’t worry if they look different when you first receive them. Alstroemeria is considered a secondary, not primary flower, making them a nice complement for other flowers. They also make perfect flower filler. They do not have any fragrance, so just enjoy them for their sheer beauty. You will also enjoy their long-lasting vase life, when proper care and handling has been taken.
