Alstroemeria Rock & Roll® ‘Alsdun01’

In 2017, it was the favorite of the public on the Exceptionnelles® site. This alstroemeria, a tissue mutation of the ‘Red Baron’ cultivar, can be grown in both sun and semi-shade. The sun does not damage its incredible variegated foliage, which changes from white to cream and yellow. This is edged and sometimes striped with dark green.

When the flowers appear, in addition to the decorative foliage which stands on its own, usually at the end of July, it’s the apotheosis. The deep orange-red flowers of Rock ‘n’ Roll® are striped with yellow and measure between 5 and 6 cm in diameter. They contrast nicely not only with the foliage, but also with the whitish stems. The umbel measures 10 to 15 cm in diameter. The plant can reach 45 to 60 cm in height and 40 to 50 cm in width. It grows in well-drained, slightly moist but not soggy soil, rich in organic matter. This alstroemeria is resistant to disease and insects. Spectacular.
