You really liked our Lily of The Incas bouquet, but wondered what this unusual flower represents? Known as alstroemeria and Peruvian lily, this long lasting flower grows in a number of different colors – white, yellow, red, hot pink, light pink, orange and purple.

The flower symbolizes devotion and friendship. Its leaves grow upside, twisting out from the stem as it grows – much like the twists, turns and growth of friendships. Alstroemeria is also a symbol of wealth, fortune and prosperity.
