Alstroemerias (or Peruvian Lilies) really make your garden come alive with colour and they make superb plants for beds and borders. Even if space is limited, they are more than happy in a pot to brighten up your terrace, patio or balcony.
A robust alstroemeria with masses of funnel shaped flowers produced over a long period, Incas will grow into a clump over time and give you a continuous supply of cut flowers all summer. Perfect to soften the edges of paths, they also mix well with other plants in the border, 'Sundace' is made up of soft buttery-yellow blooms that are detailed with borwn markings from June to November.
A clump-forming perennial that grows to just 30cm (1ft) tall, Incas are best grown in full sun or light shade in a sheltered spot, with well-draining, fertile soil to keep the fleshy roots happy.
Naturally hardy to about -7įC, they will survive most UK winters in well drained spots and emerge bigger and bolder year after year. Very easy and low maintenance - just beware slugs on new spring growth and apply a winter mulch to protect the crown!
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant.
