These miniature lilies, also known as Peruvian lilies or Lily of the Incas, are very popular flowers, especially in the cold season, when there are no more garden flowers outdoors.
They come in many colors, ranging from white, golden yellow, and orange, to apricot, pink, red, purple, and lavender but they always have two of the petals painted with vivid markings and strikingly colored spots.
Alstroemeria flowers are long lasting and very showy in flower arrangements. They usually live about two weeks in the vase, if you are lucky enough to buy fresh cut flowers.
I just received these flowers from my cousin and I like how the reddish-pink looks on a dark background.
