Alstroemeria psittacina, 7 seeds
From Brazil comes this exotic-looking plant with feathery, exquisitely speckled blooms beloved by the hummingbirds. An exuberant perennial that spreads via tubers, Alstroemeria psittacina grows quickly to cover any partially shaded area with green lush foliage. Gorgeous, red-green trumpet-shaped flowers appear from late spring through autumn. Reminiscent of parrots (hence the common name), these breath-taking beauties are great as cut flowers as well. Hardy from zone 7 onwards. 2 feet tall. Morning sun. Well-drained soil. Drought-tolerant once established. Fresh seeds, harvested 11/2016.
Our website for actively-growing plants and cuttings (eclecticplants.ecrater.com) is now re-opened starting 6/2/2014. Cuttings of some Salvia species are available there.
