From the breeding program of Cornell's Mark Bridgen (formerly at the University of Connecticut) comes this new direction in hardy alstroemeria breeding. Alstroemeria 'Patricia Lynn' is the first release, with multi-flowered inflorescences of fluorescent red-purple (RHS 61B). Each flower is highlighted by dramatic black lines and a contrasting yellow throat. For us, clumps of Alstroemeria 'Patricia Lynn' are ablaze with flowers from June until October...a superb show and hummingbird favorite in the summer garden. Alstroemeria 'Patricia Lynn' was named in 2000 in honor of the former Connecticut First Lady, Patricia Lynn Rowland.
