Alstroemeria psittacina 'Variegata' is a Japanese selection, that improves on the native Brazilian species, Alstroemeria psittacina, with dramatic, white-edged leaves. This winter-grower makes a spreading mass of attractive foliage to 15" tall x 3' wide in 6 years (much slower than the species). In June, the flowering stems erupt to nearly 3', each topped with narrow tubular flowers speckled maroon and green...a hummingbird magnet. After flowering, Alstroemeria psittacina 'Variegata' goes semi-dormant for the summer, re-emerging in September.
