'Jazze™ Rose Frost' (Alstroemeria) is a more heat tolerant Alstroemeria. The large blooms are rose pink with frosty white edging and yellow markings and stripes. It is a perennial in locations where the ground does not freeze. Due to its size, it makes a great container plant as well as being suitable for being grown in beds. It can be grown from seed.
