"We loved living in California,

Hi alstroemeria,

I still love living in CA. Your user name caught my attention. I have alstroemerias growing in my yard thanks to the original owner. I've been here over 20 years and I have more color mixes than originally(12 or 13), guess the bees cross polinate and different combinations show up. Some years I harvest the seeds and have thrown them along the trail when I go hiking... Haven't seen one yet but who knows... I've probably scattered more than 100,000 seeds by now. I have a bag with 50,000-100,000 just waiting...

There are a couple of photos in my Yahoo album if you're interested... ( )

They can be difficult to get going as they tend to have a low germination rate.

I wouldn't expect you to give a stranger your address but if you have a PO Box or some such I would be happy to send you some if you wanted to give them a try

Take care,

Regards, Ken ("As Tim McGraw sings, "I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying.")
