Lilies of the Incas
With nothing blooming in the garden, sometimes you just have to depend on the grocery store to provide a little pick-me-up. That's why I have these creamy alstroemeria flowers at hand. They are providing me with something to enjoy until the next of my indoor bubls are in bloom. These hardy flowers are often the workshorses of florist's arrangements as they last for a couple of weeks and are not expensive. Available in various shades, these delicate beauties are also known as the Peruvian lily or the Lily of the Incas.
The lovely pink shading underneath graduating to a pretty green is what drew me to this particular variety.
