Alstroemeria 'Butterfly Hybrids'

Peruvian Lily

An old strain of Peruvian lilies called the 'Ligtu Hybrids' included some great purples, but over the years these got lost. Now only the pinks and purples have been selected to create this eye-catching mix. One of the easiest cut flowers to grow and definitely one of the most impressive. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
