Description
 
We got this from Maggie at Western Hills some years ago and finally can offer this goody.  She said this was a hybrid by noted California breeder Fred Meyer between the vining Bomarea and the non-vining Alstroemeria and we have sold it in the past as Alstroemeria x Bomarea 'Fred Meyer' and more recently as Bomarea "Fred Meyer".  The great thing about putting a plant on the internet is that all sorts of smart people read about it and very nicely suggest the correct name.  This is a surprisingly hardy Brazilian species and Fred Meyer collected in Brazil quite extensively.    Good cut flower with long clean stems.  We've had this growing happily outside for years and going through single digits in winter with mulch.
