Princess Mathilde Peruvian lily
This is a cultivar of the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas. The genus is named for the Swedish baron Clas Alströmer, a close friend of Carolus Linnaeus, the guy who invented the Latin naming system. (Alstroemeria is pronounced al-stre-MEE-ree-uh.) The cultivar was produced from Alstroemeria hybrida 'Staprivina' in 2002. If anybody knows what a 'Zaprimat' is, please let me know. These plants are South American natives, and very attractive.
Identification: These compact plants are about 15" (38 cm) in height, with salmon-orange flowers that bloom continuously from April until the first frost. Compared with their progenitor, Alstroemeria hybrida 'Staprivina', these plants have an upright, somewhat outwardly spreading and mounded plant habit; a vigorous growth habit; large, salmon-colored flowers; and good garden performance.
