Two weeks later, I took this photo. They opened up more; the leaves were a little droopy, but overall they looked great. (The pinker color in this image is because of different lighting.)
That’s the last photo I took because someone (ahem, me) accidentally let them go dry one day. Despite the drought, they continued to look beautiful for a few more days. I’m convinced they could have lasted a month with proper care.
So, I’m a fan of alstroemeria. They’re not roses, but they’re pretty — and they stay pretty for much longer.
