Peruvian Lillies

An unknown patient who was discharged sent my ward a large bouquet of flowers including carnations, roses, calla lillies, cape daisys, and these peruvian lillies.I took a stem of the Alstromeria for photographing and sat them in a wine bottle in the windowsill.
I tried and failed to find a pot of them in B+Q before.They are gorgeous with pink/salmon coloured outer petals and tiger stripes on the top petals.The flowers almost have faces on them from the markings.
They are on my wish list now, to grow from bulbs if i can find a supply.
