I collect Alstroemerias and this was one of the first plants I put in.
It is a VERY vigorous cultivar.

The color is brilliant and dazzling in part shade where the blooms hold up longer in a sun-drenched climate like ours.

I recommend putting in some type of root barrier for these -- which can be as simple as a 15-gallon can with its bottom cut out (works well for us for several years).
