barrowloads of thick white tubers out of the ground caused by alstroemeria

A sterile plant is one that either doesn't produce seed at all or the seed isn't fertile, (won't germinate)

Invasive roots is another issue altogether.

aym, if it's sterile it won't invade by seeding. You've found out for yourself that the roots are invasive.

Interesting, the leaves right at the front look like box. When I looked at the OP I thought that's not box.

Are the balls ever grafted onto anything else?

Has it got any live looking buds?

The 'scrape it and see if it's green' thing is oft quoted but not entirely true. Sometimes it means it hasn't been dead long. I would have serious concerns re this plant.

Have you a photo so we can see what it looks like?

Can you id these bulbs??
