Default Alstroemeria "Princess Leyla"

I have recently spent more money than I should have done on aquiring a
rather magnificent specimen of this compact, deep red Alstroemeria.

Is any urgler prepared to guess how hardy it might be?

Well we have three in our front garden, the two very short ones have been
there for two years and are flowering well at this time the other is a
taller variety about 30inches tall, bright red, that has been out there for
years, starts flowering in May finishes with the frost, sometimes it seems
to withstand the cold until much later. Is gradually expanding it's area.
Excellent garden plants as far as we are concerned, especially the taller
ones.

Ha! And this from the man who a few posts ago was bemoaning the plethora
of varieties ;-)

I'll second that, gave some to my mum (who gardens in a cold place) its
wonderful for me but is even better for her, at a guess you should be ok
down to about -10c but even then so long as the ground where the roots are
does not freeze I see no reason why you should lose it even its colder.

Thanks to all who have reassured me that there is a good chance that I
might see it flowering next year as well.
