More Details

Alstroemeria makes supreme cut flowers, lasting months in a vase. 'Indian Summer' is one of a new, glamorous garden-bred series of mid-height varieties. It has fiery orange-red flowers which contrast fabulously against its chocolate brown foliage.

This is the most stunning plant I have seen in a long time! So glad that I bought it (albeit in the sale...) It had not been cut back and arrived in flower with more to come. Careful packaging by SR and careful handling by Royal Mail! Highly recommended!
