Peruvian Lily 'Golden Delight' Overview

Peruvian Lily 'Golden Delight' is a perennial cultivar with fleshy roots and produces bright yellow blooms, marked with attractive red-brown colouring on the inner petal surface. Commonly known as Inca lilies, they make for excellent cut flowers. Inca lilies are easy to grow. They need well-draining soil and should not be left to sit in waterlogged soil as the fleshy tubers are prone to rotting. Inca lilies enjoy a position in full morning sun and some shade in the afternoon. During the growing season, feed your Alstroemerias with a high potash fertilizer once every week to encourage flowering. Stems that are done flowering can be removed by twisting it at the base of the plant, and flowers can be deadheaded to prevent seed formation. Also be sure to mulch well around the roots, especially in colder regions. Inca lilies are easy to propagate via division.
