Description
 
Unflowered plants from our seed collection, although attributes and geography suggest a likelihood of this being the species edulis due to widespread cultivation from pre-Columbian times thanks to the edible tubers.  If this is edulis, expect 24 or more pink-tubed flowers with green-yellow throats in a fireworks umbel.  Showy orange seeds in fall.  This is a vining Alstroemeria relative and should be hardy to warm zone 7 especially with mulch.  Likes a semi-shaded spot where it can twine to 10'.
