Alstroemeria Aurantiaca is a tuberous evergreen herbaceous plant which belongs to the alstroemeriaceaes family.
It is relatively easy to grow, and will add a touch of colour in the garden.
It blooms through the summer and even part of the fall, until the cold weather arrives, but cut the plant back when the flowers are over to get a second flowering.
After this, we'll better cut back again it leaves and will leave it resting until next spring. In areas of frost it is much better to cover the ground with mulch.
It normally does not suffer from any particular diseases or aphids, but possibly some snails that we can avoid with natural product such as ashes, beer, or sawdust, or with specific product such as "caraquin"
It is very important to avoid the waterlogged soil.
It is very well known at the florist's as it is a very beautiful and long lasting flower once it is cut.
