Answer: Alstroemeria aurea, the Peruvian Lily, is a 3'-4' tall perennial topped with clusters of flowers. It grows best in cool, moist, loamy soil in full sunshine, and prefers to grow in the same spot for years without being disturbed. You may have set your plant back by transplanting it last fall. Just treat it with the same care you've been giving it, hold back on water after the stems die down, and stop fertilizing in mid-summer. Your Peruvian Lily should become established in its larger pot this summer and should bloom more profusely next year.
