Alstroemeria Appel Bloesem stands out in the garden with its tall stems, lovely rose pink blooms, and geranium coloured red spot on each of the 3 large petals. The inner petals of the flowers are half yellow with dark spots and lines.
Alstroemerias are hardy, colourful plants that are easy to grow and care for. All of this grows tall stems and shiny green leaves from rhizomes. Alstroemerias do best in soil that is rich and has good drainage. If you live in a hot climate, plant them in the morning sun, shade from midday to late afternoon, or filtered light during the day. Keep the plants damp and wet every few days to keep them from turning yellow and the plant from going to sleep. To get new growth going, pull off old stems that have already flowered. New flowers will start to grow soon after that. Great for garden borders and planters.
Alstroemerias bloom from spring to autumn in cool climates 30C or less, but they might stop flowering when the summers are very hot. This flower is beautiful in the garden and long lasting in a vase.
Alstroemeria symbolises strength and endurance.
