Soft Deep Red Potted Peruvian Lily Plants For Sale | Alstroemeria Katiana

Princess Katiana is an eye-catching Peruvian Lily with vibrant, red flowers and variegated white and green foliage. The lush, trumpet-shaped blossoms shine tirelessly from Spring until Fall.

This mound-forming, tuberous perennial is perfect for borders, small gardens and is excellent in containers! Grow her in a partial sunny spot with fertile, evenly moist, well-draining soil and you won't be sorry you did! Be careful, dry soil induces dormancy and reduces flowering vigor. Deadhead spent flowers as needed or bring flowers inside to take advantage of their long vase life as cut flowers. In early Spring, trim back or gently pull out old tuberous stems to encourage new growth and better flowering.

Are you lucky enough to have A/C? Do you keep your home temperate year-round? These compact Alstroemeria may be the most spectacular houseplant for you! As long as nobody has allergies to pollen of course.

Alstroemeria are true Goldilocks plants, they don't like it too hot nor too cold. They are native to the Andes mountain region of South America, where it stays cool/temperate year-round. Ideal temperatures are 50-65 F but they can withstand intermittent hot days up to 75 F with afternoon shade and a little TLC. Frost will kill unprotected leaves and roots.

Very Unique

I received these little plants mid April. They were carefully packaged. After a couple of days I transplanted them. Now they are doing great and flowering! I love the white edges on the leaves. Keep the snail bait handy… snails seem to love alstroemeria. And don’t forget - when picking flowers for vases, grasp the entire stem and pull it out of the ground - don’t cut the stems. The fleshy part of the stem that’s left underground can rot and introduce fungus to the root if you just cut. You can also pull non-flowering stems so flowering stems will grow to replace them.

Thank you for your detailed review and photos of the Colorita Katiana Alstroemeria! That white leaf margin with deep red flowers is so eye-catching - glad to hear they are performing well for you. Thanks also for the tips on picking. Happy Gardening!
