I have been eyeing this plant all summer at one of our local nurseries - not quite convinced that it will survive my zone 6 winter, no matter what they say. Finally I bought it at the end of season clearance. They recommended a well-drained area and well mulched for the winter.
It is just beautiful, and I do hope it makes it. We'll see...

Alstroemeria 'Mauve Majesty'
Bright mauve pink flowers with beautiful dark speckling and a creamy yellow throat are produced atop neat, upright plants in midsummer. They make excellent cut flowers, lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase. New from the Breeding Program of Mark Bridgen at Cornell. PPAF
