FLOWER OF THE MONTH: THE SHY ALSTROEMERIA

The Alstroemeria hides somewhat shyly in its buds in the shop. But gosh, what a surprise when those buds open in your home. Then you will see six to eight flowers on the stem, with a flaming interior of white, yellow, red, orange, purple or pink which you can really enjoy. Particularly since these flowers have a very long vase life.

TRENDY SPRAY ALSTROEMERIAS

Besides the regular Alstroemeria you probably are familiar with the Spray Alstroemeria. Charmelia Bridesmaid by breeder Royal van Zanten and Paradiso by breeder Könst Alstroemeria were the first Spray Alstroemerias on the market. OZ Export and Together2Grow introduced these amazing flowers to the market a few years ago. Now they are one of the most trendy Alstroemerias out there! They are perfect for exclusive flower design, but they will be just as pretty as a mono bouquet on the coffee table in your own home.

CARE TIPS FOR ALSTROEMERIAS

If you like to enjoy your Alstroemerias for a long time, follow these tips:
• Trim the stems diagonally and remove the bottom leaves so they don’t dangle in the water.
• Arrange the Alstroemerias in a clean vase with fresh water and some cut flower food.
• Avoid placing the vase in full sun, near a fruit bowl or near the central heating.
• Remove wilted flowers and regularly top the vase up with tap water.
