Red Alstroemeria flowers-closeup photos

Alstroemeria flowers, though native to South America, are widely cultivated in European green houses, especially in Holland.

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.

These are such fun, sweet little lilies and they are so readily available here even in supermarkets at such an inexpensive price. with their long-lasting blossoms, what's not to love about them. I too like how lovely they look with the dark background. Beautiful shots!
