I have just the one clump of alstromeria. Cannot now remember the variety...tall, classy and long flowering.
I grew a number of varieties but they have a couple of issues for me. They are a little invasive. They also become dormant for a period in mid summer leaving a gap in the border. I have overcome this by placing late summer perennials around alstromeria.
for me, good winter drainage, sunshine, good soi, feeding, regular spent flower removal and staking (if a tall variety) is the way to grow alstromerias
