Alstroemeria is a beautiful flower from Alstroemeriaceae family. Commonly known as Peruvian lily this plant is native to South America.

This flower gained popularity due to vast array of colors and vase longevity. With proper care, alstroemerias have been known to last for weeks in a vase.

While in bud form this flower has distinguishable black or brown lines on the outside, but once in full bloom alstroemerias look spectacular.

I personally find this to be a very happy and engaging flower. I love to use this in mixes and as a base, because it wonderfully completes the design and accentuate the main flowers once in a mix.

But, alstroemeria all by itself is quite dashing. One of my favorite pure alstroemeria designs comes from Mary Murray in Tulsa. So simple, yet beautiful.

Apart from alstroemeria in some of our favorite designs, we also have a pure alstroemeria vase.
