I am growing several Alstroemerias here in central Florida. In pots...too wet in summer for them...but they do well in pots. I grow A. pelegrina - which I keep somewhat dry in summer and A. hookeri - which I keep very dry in summer. And a commercial hybrid I got in Home Depot. The hybrid and pelegrina do very well. A. hookeri blooms but the plant is lanky and the flower is small and pale pink. What other species of Alstroemeria are sub-tropical? Lynn Makela Tampa, FL Hot and dry - where is the rain?
