Al­stroe­me­ria ‘Red Baron’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

There isn’t much sub­tle about these peren­ni­als and they of­ten need a lot of staking, but Peru­vian lilies in good soil are in­cred­i­ble per­form­ers, pump­ing out the blooms and mak­ing great, lon­glast­ing stems for a vase. When you pick, rip the stalks out of the ground to in­vig­o­rate the fleshy un­der­ground stems into pro­duc­ing more. This red al­ways looks dap­per be­side black Aeo­nium ‘Zwartkop’.
