Alstroemeria or Peruvian Lily

Alstroemeria, is also sometimes known by its other name, the Peruvian Lily. It has brightly colored, smaller blooms that are often two-tone in color. It's freckled petals often grows in clusters of 3 to 5.

They can be quite inexpensive and serve as a great backdrop to other flowers in bouquets or other decorations, although if you mass the blooms together you can make quite a stunning an inexpensive bridal bouquet. ( more)

They can be purchased through an online website that I recommend at Fifty Flowers where they offer Wedding flowers at wholesale prices. Huge selection, free shipping.

They are available year round in the colors of white, yellow, orange, pink, red, lavender, purple and flecked. This flower gives off no scent.

They will last up to 10 days if properly conditioned by cutting the stem with a sharp knife on a slant preferably under water, then placed in a bucket or other container with water mixed with a commercial flower food.

Availability of the peruvian lily bloom is year round and with each stem averaging 3 to 5 blooms, they are sure to add exotic flair to your bouquet or arrangement.

This flower's meaning is wealth, prosperity, fortune or friendship.

You can choose to have a whole bouquet of these beautiful blooms or just use them in a mixed bouquet.

Whether you choose them for your bridal bouquet or for your bridesmaid's bouquets, they will sure to be stunning.

They are also a really nice choice for a centerpiece for your wedding reception and with the color choices available, you'll be sure to find something to match your colors.
