Florist & Wholesaler Information

  • Alstroemeria is an extremely long lasting cut flower (12 to18 days).
  • Purchase only from farms who post harvest treat the flowers with flowerpreservatives for premature yellowing of foliage.
  • New premium varieties have better flower structure, bloom size and interesting colours. 
  • Perfection is a new patented process which features special custom packaging, individually netted blooms and a fully"open cut stage"
  • Common name for Alstroemeria is "Peruvian Lily"
Care and Handling Tips:
- The first consideration is handling the stems: Stem joints break easily, so handle them gently.
- When received, unpack them immediately, trim about 1 inch from the stem ends with a diagonal cut and place them in a vase with lukewarm water and a flower preservation.
- Change the water and preservation in your vase every four or five days. Also, cut the stem ends again and remove all spent flowers and yellowing leaves.
- Keep your vase in a cool place away from drafts and direct sunlight.
