Julietta is my favorite Alstroemeria. I also have Sweet Laura and Kopride varieties.

Julietta has a bit larger blossom than my other two varieties yet has a more compact growing habit.

These are planted in part shade. They get filtered shade in the morning and then about 3 hours of evening sun.

I've found Alstroemeria really appreciate a daily watering even once established.

This one is so beautiful. It has survived two winers in a large metal babies bath tub and returned well. The last winter was prolonged, very cold, with frost to -9C.

I have had another different Alstreomeria in a similar tub for 8 years, it does still return but has dwindled. I took a piece from that to grow in a pot, kept under cover in a shed with a window over winter. They prefer to have cool roots and don't like disturbance.

The name on the label is spelled with two "ll"s in Julietta, I have seen other spellings with one "t". It is a Registered trade Mark of the growers Van Zanten Plants B.V.
