I found this blooming in my garden today, and I have had the plant for several years and never even realized it bloomed! The bloom stalk is probably over two feet tall, I thought the plant was some sort of ground cover.

Alstromeria, Peruvian Lily is my very most favorite cut flower. You find them as fillers in many cut bouquets. But to me, they stand lovely in their own. Your's appears to be a red. They come in many colors. Enjoy! Hurray!

Larry, did you want to leave it in the generic entry or move it to the Parrot Lily (Alstroemeria psittacina) entry?

Either way is fine with me, I did not know if it was specific enough to move from the generic section.
