The brilliant red flowers of Alstroemeria ‘Summer Heat’ add a fiery flash to borders and pots for months. The funnel-shaped blooms are painted with yellow blotches and streaks, giving them an exotic appearance which belies their ease of care. Forming a neat, well-branching, bushy plant, Alstroemeria ‘Summer Heat’ pumps out blooms from June until November, with plenty spare for vase arrangements and bouquets. Height: 60cm (24in). Spread: 50cm (20in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Pot up Alstroemeria plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors and all risk of frost has passed. Alstroemerias perform best in a sunny, sheltered spot in a rich, free-draining soil that contains lots of organic matter. A weekly feed with a high-potassium feed such as tomato food will encourage prolific blooming, while removing each stem after the flowers have faded will prolong the flowering season. Tall stems may benefit from staking or support to prevent wind damage. Will survive temperatures down to around minus 5c but not much lower. Apply an autumn mulch if in a border, or if in a container, move to a frost-free spot over winter.
Throughout the growing season, water Peruvian lilies regularly and feed container grown plants each month. When picking alstroemeria pluck the flowers rather than cutting as plucking stimulates the rhizome encourage further growth. In autumn, cut back the old Alstroemeria flower stems and apply a dry mulch of chipped bark or straw to the base of the plant to protect it from cold winter weather. Alstroemeria prefers to be left undisturbed but can be divided in autumn or spring if clumps become overcrowded. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
