Peruvian Lily is the common name for the flower species Alstroemeria Pelegrina. Also known as lily of the Incas the Peruvian Lily originated in Chile & Brazil in South America. Most you see today are hybrids that are a cross between the two species which makes them hardy and diverse in colors including shades of red, rose, yellow, orange and creamy white. They are very popular with florists because of this so they are found in all types of flower arrangements. They grow up to 3ft. tall on stems with narrow dark green leaves.
Peruvian Lilies grow best in areas where they can get a lot of sun in the morning but a bit of shade in the afternoons. They need to have moist, slightly acidic soil that drains off water well. Cut back on watering in the winter and make sure to feed them bloom fertilizer every 2-3 weeks. They can also be grown in pots and make good house plants. Just be sure they get enough sun and that they don't get overheated.
