I bought 'alstroemeria mauve majesty' last year and absolutely loved it. This year it has just flowered and the flowers are a totally different colour. Instead of the lovely pale mauve they have appeared maroon (still nice). They appear to have reverted, and I wonder if anyone else has had this experience with alstroemerias. Also, two of the three plants have have had the new shoots eaten to ground level. I see that lily beetle is a pest on these plants, but I suspect mice (caught 18 last week). Anyone else any thoughts on this.
