This is the pesky take-over alstroemeria in a neglected bed. Hard to start but hard to get rid of too. Nice bright flowers, does not need a lot of sun, gets nearly 3 feet tall. The downside: after blooming in June, the plants die back completely, leaving untidy yellow foliage and empty spots in the border. The pink and white garden cultivars are not so agressive.
