Val they are hardy but need a dry mulch over winter, this is a baby, and is in a pot, too young to go out now, would not get it's feet down before the winter sets in....Motty this is my first red one, I want Princess Angela (on the right hand side of this page) looking for a cheaper one though lol

Oh yes Dd...Princess Angela is another beauty...bit pricey, aren't they?....:>)

The princess has disappeared off the page. This one is similar to my 'purple rain' D. I can't lift and divide it yet because it is still flowering it's head off!

She's still there, Karen - down the bottom, what a beauty!! They all have such beautiful markings.

This is really pretty and the Princess Angela is lovely too. I love yellow flowers.

Motty they are expensive, we try to get them for under £10 if possible, but they are so worth it, ours are all still flowering.....Karen they are difficult to divide, they go to pieces!! HB and Wagger I would fill the garden with these if I could afford to....

Thanks for that DD. In that case, I should try some cuttings.

Hi DD I love Alstromerias....and your new baby is no exception....:)))
I still have mine going lovely in the garden...and once they like where they are, they spread fast, so allow plenty of room...lol....
