Frequent question: How do you plant Alstroemeria Indian summer?

Is Alstroemeria Indian summer invasive?

Vigorous without being invasive, make this gorgeous climber the workhorse of your garden – clothe walls, fences or pergolas in tropical colour from late spring right through to autumn. Campsis plants will also cope well with dry conditions and clay soils too.

How do you overwinter Alstroemeria in pots?

Mulch the clumps in autumn and winter to protect them further, and they will reliably overwinter outside. If you have a greenhouse it is well worth growing alstroemerias inside too. Pot them up into 5 litre pots in free-draining, gritty compost. Keep them frost free.

Does alstroemeria need full sun?

Plants thrive in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Flowering may slow or stop in hot weather; prolong bloom by applying a thick layer of mulch at planting time to keep roots cool.

Can I grow alstroemeria from cuttings?

You can propagate alstroemeria by taking cuttings and planting them, while cut flowers will often last for a few weeks in water – they’re a popular flower to give friends or loved ones on special occasions.

Do alstroemerias like acid soil?

Since this plant can take slightly acidic soil, you can add both fresh and used coffee grounds in the garden.

How do you propagate Astromelias?

Divide Alstroemeria rhizomes in the spring. Cut the plants 6 to 8 inches above the ground about 10 to 15 days before you divide the rhizomes. Alstroemeria rhizomes grow 12 to 15 3/4 inches deep. When you dig up the rhizomes, make sure you get all the roots in addition to the growing points.
