Alstroemeria 'Princess Eliane'

9th July 2011

There is a lot of breeding work going on with Alstroemeria and great progress has been made. Unfortunately it has concentrated on growing new cultivars for the cut flower market.
I have seen many od the new dwarf cultivars prospering in the trials at Wisley and I am convinced that they will work here if I can get the conditions right. It is a big "if".
This was a large plant when it went in. It flowered well through the first summer, was hit badly in the first winter and I'm not expecting to see it again.
