Q I have tried everywhere to find seeds or bulbs of Alstroemeria, but have had no success, even in Holland when I was there. Would you know of a source?M. P. South Harpswell, Maine Alstroemeria is a native of Chile, but it is commonly called Lily of Peru. It has become a very popular florists' cut flower. In warm climates it can be grown as a perennial, but where temperature drops much below freezing, roots must be dug and stored over winter. It is easily started from seeds which are available from Park Seed, Greenwood, S.C. 29646.
