Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Also known as Peruvian Lily. Plant roots 8" below soil surface, or 4-6" deep in warmer climates. Alstromeria is susceptible to root rot, cultivate to a depth of 15 inches to avoid this.
Mulch in early winter and do not disturb roots. Handle the tuberous roots gently as they can be brittle. Space 12" apart. Prefers full sun to partial shade and well drained, organic, moist soil. Blooms June to September. Grow against a warm wall and provide winter mulch where marginally hardy (Zone 5). Where not hardy dig and store roots in moist potting mix and store at 2-5°C.
