    The seeds don’t germinate well, sometimes only 25% success. Look for the little bulbs/tubers in the soil and replant like spring bulbs.

    Thanks everyone! Although it may be easy to care for I have yet to find an area it thrives in… but I’ll keep trying. I saved some seeds that I hope to grow next year.

    Looks like Alstromeria or Peruvian lily. http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/consumer/factsheets/bulbs-summer/alstroemeria.html Many different colors available and good as a cut flower. Looks like it may be hardy in your area with some care.

    This is an Alstoremeria psittacina – (Inca Lily or Parrot Lily). Hummingbirds love it. It is a great flower, easy to care for, but multiplies rapidly. Buck
