Small plants, big flowers. That’s the concept behind the Inca series of alstroemeria, a range that is now 24 in number, developed and introduced by the Dutch nursery Könst, who have been growing peruvian lilies for some 40 years. You can find out more about them and the Inca series here.

Alstroemeria have big fleshy root structures, which develop quickly, even on young plants, so if you are growing in a pot, make sure it is large enough to contain the roots. If it’s not, the crown of the plant wil be pushed upwards proud of the top of the pot. That said, alstroemerias do make great pot specimens, especially the more compact varieties, of which Inca Vito is a prime example.

The blood red blooms on Alstroemeria Inca Vito are long lasting, but when they do go over, make sure you do the correct deadheading method for these plants, which is to pull out the entire stem by giving it a sharp vertical tug. That way you will get a constant succession of flowers for months on end.

Alstroemeria Inca Vito is a hardy perennial with crimson red trumpet shaped flowers with flecked throats in summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
