Alstroemeria, also referred to as the Peruvian Lily, is a timeless flower that can be used in many different wedding styles. It comes in a variety of colors with vibrant center stripes for accent. There are multiple hybrids so if you have a specific request be sure to mention it to your florist.
The classic white variety is an excellent way to keep your bouquet with the simplicity of white with green accents adding a pop of stripe colors in the center of the alstroemeria. Interestingly enough though, not all varieties have stripes down the middle.
They have sturdy stems which allows them to be easy to work with when adding them to an arrangement or bouquet.
They can truly match with many different flower combinations from succulents to orchids the options are endless.
This flower grows in a spiral shape, the green leaves start growing upside down and then turn as they grow.
These flowers are available in white, golden yellow, orange, pink, red, purple and lavender.
Alstroemeria is the flower for friendship and is symbolic for wealth and prosperity.
This whimsical combination is breath taking.
I think that this flower can be overlooked at times based on the fact it is widely popular in your grocery store florist. But I think when added with the right combination of flowers it can be a perfect match for your floral plan. Although they bloom naturally in late spring or early summer they can be found at your florist throughout the year. You may never know the potential of this flower until you put it in a picture perfect combination for your wedding day.
