Alstroemeria psittacina 'Royal Star'

28th August 2011

Alstroemeria psittacina does well in a number of local gardens and I would love to grow it here. I was offered a clump of the variegated form and had high hopes, but I have spent the summer watching it get smaller and smaller.

I think this was the last I saw of it. I already knew that Alstroemeria struggled if they were overgrown and unfortunately I have just proved it again. I'm looking at the possibility of trying again one day in a raised bed, but it will have to wait until I have a raised bed to try in.
