Hi JMARIE Welcome! to All Things Plants!

Parrot Lily (Alstroemeria pulchella) sure is a beauty!

Annie's Annuals site says it's Not in Production: http://www.anniesannuals.com/plants/view/?id=1980 but you may be able to contact them and ask if it will be available at some point. You can read member recommendations for Annie's Annuals in our Green Pages here: Annie's Annuals & Perennials

The variegated leaf form is listed for sale at Glasshouse Works: http://www.glasshouseworks.com/alstroemeria-pulchella-varieg... and you can read recommendations for Glasshouse Works here: Glasshouse Works

I don't know anything about this company but it's listed for sale on their website: http://www.anniesmagicgarden.com/product.php?productid=18493...
I couldn't find any recommendations for them in our Green Pages

Good luck on your search for that lovely plant and again, Welcome!

Hello and Welcome! ,
I have some in my yard. Because I am too casual to pay attention, the seeds disperse and volunteers pop up all over in unexpected places.

Just recently I learned how to use organza bags to capture the seeds and have plenty of seeds.

If you want to grow the plant from seed, send me a Tree-mail. Thumbs up

Thanks. The plants will make flower faster if planted as (what are those underground thingies called?) but seeds are easier to mail. Thumbs up
