These Peruvian Lilies (Alstromeria aurea) piggybacked in with some society garlic plants years ago. The garlic has long since moved to large pots out front, but I let these guys run wild under our Cherimoya tree by the deck.

They’re quite tall for Alstromeria — almost 4 feet — but the color and complexity of the flower is really amazing. They bloom here in San Diego from February to May, which a nursery person told me means they are a Brazilian variety. The Chilean variety blooms in summer.

Brazilian, Chilean, Peruvian, whatever. They look great.
