We got this from Maggie at Western Hills some years ago as an Alstroemeria x Bomarea hybrid called 'Fred Meyer'. Thanks to Martin Grantham at UC Davis, we finally have the correct name. This is a rare and surprisingly hardy species from Brazil which does great outside for us. Pink corolla tube with green petals and yellow throat. Not aggressive.
Awesome species endemic to coastal Chile and has excellent foliage coupled with exotic butterfly flowers of varying shades of pink doodled in pencil lines and all surrounding a soft yellow eye. Bummer it is not hardy but rock on that it is winter dormant and easily overwintered inside. Quite drought tolerant when dormant.
Nice variegated Alstroemeria with clusters of narrow tubular red and green flowers which are a nice departure from the gaudiness of so many of the hybrids. Easy in a sunny spot and tolerates some drier conditions. Prefers a well-drained soil.
