Lovely Purple Alstroemeria Plants for Sale | Colorita Louise

It's hard to believe that a flower this brilliant and beautiful could be so low-maintenance, but it's true! Perfect for season-long containers of color and cut arrangements, Louise is a compact plant boasting snazzy purple flowers with yellow accents. There's no need for pinching, staking, or fussing when it comes to these charming cultivars!

This mound-forming, tuberous perennial is perfect for borders, small gardens and is excellent in containers! Grow her in a partially 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.
