Description

Flaunt a fiesta of colour in your garden by inviting Alstroemeria 'Eliane' to the plant party! Smothered with hot pink flowers, featuring dark flecks against a marigold yellow throat—it’s the life and soul of summer with those mesmerising tiger-stripe markings! The bright blooms of Alstroemeria 'Eliane' will sing out against their dusky green foliage all the way from the sunny days of June, right into autumn when they’ll glow with a luminous beauty in the muted light. At a relatively compact 30cm, let this stunner take pride of place at the front of your border, or plant in patio pots for an eye-catching parade.

The Colorita® series of Alstroemeria are known for being densely branched and compact, so these pretty perennials should not need any staking and their neat form lends itself well to use in containers. Alstroemeria Colorita® 'Eliane' will perform at its very best in a sheltered position, facing south or west to bask in the sunshine, you’ll find it won’t flower quite so well in a shady spot. Be sure to water your Alstroemeria 'Eliane' plants well in dry spells to promote maximum flower formation, keeping the show going well into the cooler months. To frame those lustrous blooms, why not pair it with Sedum 'Xenox' for an autumn display which will see the season out with a bang!

Useful information

    • Soak your Alstroemeria 'Eliane' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Dwarf Peruvian lily" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
