Flower of the Week

6 Sep

This week’s flower is Alstroemeria.

The Alstroemeria is also known as Peruvian Lily or Inca Lily. This flower comes in white, lavender, purple, pink, magenta, red, peach, orange, yellow, and bicolor.
A little about Alstroemeria: The blooms come in clusters of 4 to 6 trumpet like flowers. Most varieties have freckle like marks or streaks of a contrasting color on the inside petals. The blooms are fragrant and can be dried.
Alstroemerias are used in arrangements to enhance the other blooms. They represent devotion, aspiration, wealth, prosperity, and fortune. Perfect for congratulating someone on a recent achievement!
