Alstromeria - Peruvian Lilies
Peruvian lilies, also known as Alstroemeria or Lily of the Inca, are a stunning flower choice for any gift. They are very cost effective too, since there are multiple blooms on each stem and they are more condensed than most flowers. Because of this, you receive approximately 135 blooms per bouquet! They are usually around 20" tall. As the buds continue to bloom one after another, you'll enjoy watching the brilliant abundance of blooms overflowing the vase. A vase full of Peruvian lily flowers is truly a spectacular sight, and for this reason they are a top choice for all kinds of occasions. When you send flowers online from us, you can be sure that you're giving the very best.

They're now predominantly known as Peruvian lily flowers, but they were at first called Alstromeria lilies after Baron Von Alstroemer. He discovered them in the great mountains of Peru and brought their seeds back to Europe. This took place in the late 1700s and soon after they became one of the most popular flowers in the world. Giving an outstanding gift of a lily bouquet allows you and the recipient to partake in their rich history, and to enjoy some of the most beautiful flowers ever cultivated.

The meaning of Peruvian lilies is simple and beautiful, just like the flowers themselves. They stand for devotion and friendship. They're a very convenient choice for nearly any occasion. Whether it's a birthday, a graduation, or just because, they are sure to bring a smile onto everyone's face. These lilies may also be used in flower arrangements as a complement to other types of flowers. They grab attention rather than fading into the background, and make up a significant part of any bouquet.

There isn't much mystery involved with how to grow lilies. There are just a few important steps to keep in mind. The soil should be very well drained, and they shouldn't be crowded—lilies like lots of fresh air surrounding them. Dig 1' holes and mix fertilizer into the soil. The bulbs should be planted in soil three times their own depth. If they are planted in sandy soil, plant them two inches deeper than you would in clay soil. Space small lilies about 6" apart, large ones 1' apart. Mulching will help keep them moist, keep the temperature consistent, and keep weeds from choking their growth. With proper care, your lilies will grow into magnificent blooms. (Please keep in mind that these tips do not apply to Calla lily flowers, which are not true lilies at all.)

You can also conveniently order by phone by calling (877) 899-2468. You won't find lovelier blooms on the internet, and everything is certified USDA organic, Veriflora, Max Havelar, and other floral farming certifications. Peruvian lilies are a beautiful eco-friendly gift, so buy one today to send a gift that makes a world of difference.
