Alstroemeria psittacina is a parent of many of the spectacularly colorful Alstroemeria hybrids. The flowers are crimson on the outside with light lemon-lime shades at the petal tips and on the inside. The interior of the flower is streaked with greenish-black.

Parrotlily has escaped cultivation and naturalized in many parts of the world, including the southeastern U.S.

Parrotlilies like rich, slightly acidic soils (pH 5.8 -6.8). Grow in full sun where summer temperatures are moderate. High or partial shade is preferred in hot climates.
