Alstroemeria gone wild

Several years ago my wife was given this Peruvian Lily as a houseplant. It didn't do particularly well in the house (in fact, I thought it was dead), so I dumped it into the garden near the strawberry planter. Not only was the plant not dead, but it thrives in the dry soil and treats us to this show every spring through autumn.

Peruvian Lilly

Mom gave me a couple of different types of Alstromeria (aka Peruvian Lilly) 15 years ago when she re-vamped her garden. Stuff re-seeded, spread throughout the upper yard and grows like a weed in half a dozen place now. I've seen uglier weeds.
