When Do Alstroemeria Bloom in Colorado?
As you may have already guessed, there are two main factors that determine when alstroemeria will bloom: where your alstroemeria are planted & weather (time).
Bloom Time Depends on Where Your Alstroemeria Are Planted!!!
When your alstroemeria will bloom will depend on exactly where it is planted in your yard or garden
In general, expect the following:
- If a alstroemeria is planted in an area of your yard that receives full sun it will bloom around the same time every year or up to two weeks early due to warm weather and extra sunlight.
- If a alstroemeria is planted in an area of your yard that received partial sun it will bloom around the same time every year.
- If a alstroemeria is planted in an area of your yard that receives shade and is not protected from wind or rain it will bloom anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks later than its average time.
