Alstroemeria Aurea Orange King
Bring a rush of fiery colour to summer and autumn borders with Alstroemeria ‘Aurea Orange King’.
From June until October, this exotic-looking Peruvian lily bears clusters of glowing, funnel-shaped orange flowers with a golden-yellow upper lip and dark speckles.
Invaluable as cut flowers, Alstroemeria are loved for their tropical looks and exceptional vase-life, often lasting for 2-3 weeks in fresh water.
This eye-catching, tangerine-toned Alstroemeria proudly holds an Award of Garden Merit, granted by the Royal Horticultural Society as a mark of excellence.
For thriving Alstroemeria, choose a sunny location with well-drained, light soil. Plant rhizomes 10-15cm deep and 30cm apart.
Maintain consistent moisture, ensuring the soil remains damp.
A profusion of multi-headed, vibrant blooms appear between June and October which are long-lasting and excellent for cutting. Stems reach 30-120cm in height, depending on variety.
Top dress in spring and once again during the growing season.
Shorter varieties are excellent for container planting.
