Alstroemeria is a bulbous tender perennial grown for its exquisitely dainty flowers which bloom on tall stalks in the summer. Parigo charm alstroemeria produces clusters of salmon-pink, funnel-shaped flowers; the inner tepals are yellow slashed with brown markings. Long-prized by florists as cut flowers, today there are many hybrid cultivars suited to growing in home gardens.
Grow alstroemeria in moist but well-drained, fertile soil in full sun to partial shade. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month. Contact with the foliage can cause skin reactions in sensitive people; as a precaution, wear gloves when working with this plant. This lovely plant will add an airy elegance to mixed borders. Plant extra to enjoy cut since alstroemeria lasts a long time in a vase with water.
