Peruvian Lilies, also scientifically called Alstroemeria, are the longest-lasting cut flower. They can last for upwards of 3 weeks. Now imagine being able to grow those same flowers in your garden all summer long. Inca Batavia® Peruvian Lily is a nonstop bloomer, compact enough to be considered for the smallest patio container garden. The deep magenta flowers are produced from early summer to the first frost of fall with little maintenance. 

Inca Batavia® has dense branching and a stiff, upright growth habit, which requires almost no staking to support the heavily flowering branches. The restrained growth habit of this variety keeps it from self-seeding aggressively, although dividing and spreading can be done every 3-4 years with tidy plant clumps. Alstroemeria is relatively drought tolerant when established and is able to withstand heat and humidity while still looking fresh and cool. Grow some Inca Batavia® as a filler plant combined with Superbells® Calibrachoa and a Baby Tut® Umbrella Grass as a focal point for your patio in a large planter.

Inca Batavia® Peruvian Lily Care

Peruvian Lilies thrive in hot weather with as much sun as possible. In very hot or humid climates, shade late in the day helps to keep the foliage from getting scorched. Average soil texture, moisture, and pH are acceptable. Water container-grown Peruvian Lily often so that only the top 1-2 inches of the potting mix dry out between sessions. Fertilize Peruvian Lilies in pots once every two weeks through the summer. Use a diluted liquid fertilizer that is formulated for blooming or fruiting plants. Tomato or rose food is ideal.  

Although this is a perennial in zones 8-10, colder USDA zones can grow Alstroemeria as a warm season annual. Overwintering this tuberous perennial is easy, even in the coldest gardening zones. When nighttime temperatures fall to 55 degrees F, bring the pots into a protected and frost-free spot for the winter. A minimally heated garage, greenhouse, or dark corner of the basement allows the plants to be semi-dormant until spring. The plants should be kept on the dry side, watering only once every month. When the temperatures warm in the spring, bring the pots back outdoors and repot in fresh potting mix for the new season. Resume regular watering and fertilizing as new shoots appear.

Inca Batavia® Peruvian Lily Spacing

The extra compactness of this Peruvian Lily means that it can be added to planters and garden beds, even if space is at a premium. The overall mature height and spread will be 16 inches. Space each plant 12 inches apart, center on center, when growing in the ground. A container with at least an 8-inch diameter is needed for potting individual plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
