More Alstroemeria

Here’s two other Alstroemeria flower colours that I admired when we visited Dunedin Botanic Gardens on 08 Dec 2019. These flowers en masse are so bright that they really stand out from everything around them. “More” in the title of this post refers to the photos I’ve already posted of gorgeous pink Alstroemeria taken during the same visit.

A spidery creature with long thin legs emerged from the flowers just before I took the photo of these yellow Alstroemeria. I wondered if it would be visible and was happy to see it is (just to the right of centre, then down a bit).

    1. It’s slowly dawning on me that they seem to grow pretty well down south. Will have to look into them a bit more as I don’t know much about them and they do seem to be nice flowers!

  1. For years, I only saw Alstromeria in grocery stores. I had no idea where it came from; it just was “there.” It was a favorite, because it usually was relatively inexpensive, and the flowers lasted longer than anything else, except perhaps carnations. They really are beautiful.
