I have not grown this plant. The 'Odessa' bloom has a white center and with a dark pink edge. The blooms are 8 cm wide and have a vase life of 16 days. There are 4 to 5 flowers per stem with each break being 10 to 12 cm long. The flower stems are very sturdy. It is often used in bridal bouquets.

I believe 'Odessa' was bred by Könst Alstroemeria B.V. which is a company specializing in the selection, breeding and propagation of Alstroemeria plants.
