(aka: Alstroemeria 'Tessumbre') What if we told you there was a Zone 5b hardy alstroemeria with black-purple foliage, edged in green and topped all summer with clusters of flowers with petals alternated orange and speckled yellow, each backed with an attractive cinnamon blush. I first met Alstroemeria 'Summer Breeze' at the Dallas Arboretum, where it scoffed at regular summer temperatures over 100 degrees F, and ran into it again at Walters Gardens in Michigan, where it didn't blink after winter temperatures of -15F. Now, it's in North Carolina, and we want to share. For us, the 30" tall clumps are topped with flowers from early June through October...simply fabulous!
