Yellow & Red Alstroemeria Plants for Sale Online | Colorita Sara

If King Midas has his way, the world would be filled with flowers like Alstroemeria Sara. This beauty stands out with glorious golden-yellow blooms, each embellished with soft touches of blush and mahogany "lashes." This prolific plant becomes completely engulfed in buds and blossoms for months, making it an excellent focal point in gardens and containers. As with other specially bred Princess Lilies, Sara is compact, floriferous, and long-blooming!

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.

Orange Blast!

This has been a vigorous plant in my garden. Spreading nicely and giving lots of blooms for the vase. At 5 yrs old, the stalks are 12 to 14" and have about 8 flowers. Very bright and cheery. A little later blooming than some others, which is nice, ensuring a house full of flowers! They do tend to fade in the vase, mine will hold up to 2 weeks, but will be lighter in color by then... and I'm not complaining!
