Information @ a Glance

  • Alstroemeria is a genus of perennials (one annual species) with fleshy rhizomes, in the Alstroemeriaceae family. All species are from South America.
  • Alstroemeria (syn. Alstremeria), commonly called the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas, is a South American genus of about 50 species of flowering plants.
  • The flowers of Alstroemeria are generally showy and appear to be suited to pollination by bees.

Growth & Cultivation

  • Alstroemeria has narrow stem leaves that are twisted at the base with thick tuberous roots. Alstroemeria 'Parigo Charm' is a tuberous perennial that blooms in salmon-pink flowers in the summer. The inner tepals are primrose-yellow, marked carmine.
  • Alstroemeria is a plant which can be sensitive to light and temperature. In the open field Alstroemeria's can also be grown, although the weather conditions do influence the growing of the crop directly.
  • Alstroemeria can be grown on nearly all soil types.

Market & Report

  • Exports of Alstroemeria have increased compared with previous years. The introduction of improved varieties and better production has made this a more attractive crop both to the grower and the exporter.
  • The role of ethylene in the senescence and abscission of Alstroemeria peruviana cv. Rebecca and cv. Samora tepals was previously unclear, with silver treatments recommended for delaying leaf rather than flower senescence.
  • Alstromeria is a vigorous crop and will reach 2.5 m in height. Trellising is essential. The same system as carnations is ideal, using four to five layers of 20 x 20 cm mesh spaced at 50 cm intervals.
