Hello dear all,
First : sorry for my english...

Im growing many species of Alstromeria in zone 9, in brittany france. And i
have A. Pelegrina flowering in this time and A. Violacea. Im growing many
of them directly in the ground inside my green house.
I Saw A. Pelegrina growing outside in the botanical garden of edinburgh
After a hard winter and resist under 10 celsius degree.
In my greenhouse she is growing all winter but in edinburgh she start
growing now.

Best regard.
