You might know these perky freckled flowers as peruvian lily, princess lily, inca lily, alstros, or even ulster mary.  They're fantastic plants for sunny garden borders, and make great cut flowers for the lounge room too.

Butterscotch is a gold-apricot with shades of toffee along the outer petals, tan freckles on the inner ones.

Alstroemeria Butterscotch

DESCRIPTION : Sun-loving plants with open freckled flowers in peach-gold shades. Excellent as cut flowers.
USE IN : Plant as a flowering border below deciduous trees or group closely in pots for bright spring flowering colour.
PLANTING : Gladioli thrive in sunny, free draining, fertile soil. Prepare clay soil using a clay-breaker and add well composted manure or mulch to help with drainage. Add grit, gravel or sharp sand to your planting holes if your soil is heavy, or plant up into containers. Cover soil with a good layer of mulch to help regulate soil temperature and protect from winter frost.
CARE : Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. An occasional light watering is all that's needed until the flower spike emerges, then water and feed fortnightly. Once flowering is finished, cut the flowerstem out, give it a final feed and water, and leave plants to die back. It's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year. When the bulbs die back completely remove spent foliage and leave in place for next season. Or remove for storage - gently dig up bulbs, wash soil away using water and a soft brush for stubborn spots. Place bulbs in a cool shady spot to dry, then store in a dark, well ventilated room. Paper bags are ideal, remember to label each variety!
CLIMATE : Frost free
