(aka: Alstroemeria 'Tesronto') Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer' is a breeding breakthrough in garden quality alstroemerias. This amazing selection has sailed through both our trials for heat and humidity as well as winter hardiness trials in western Michigan (multiple winters of below -15 degrees F). Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer' emerges in spring with 3' tall purple-tinted stalks, clothed with grey purple foliage, and topped, starting in late spring, with terminal clusters of flowers. The flowers are composed of three orange petals, intermixed with three yellow petals with violet flecks. Flowering slows in the heat or summer, but resumes as night temperatures cool, and continues until frost. The effect of Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer' in the garden is truly stunning!
