Alstroemeria 'Inca Ice'- reliably hardy in z5?
We just got this in at the nursery I am working at. This cultivar is reputed to be hardy in zone 5. Just curious to know how well it has done for others in my zone and if it has been totally hardy. I'm kind of debating weather or not to get one or not... While I've always wanted to try Alstroemeria, I am not entirely convinced by the fleshy apricot color (slightly wishy-washy, though it could be because it has been in our greenhouse and not exposed to real sunlight yet) of this particular cultivar, or the "reliably hardy in z5" comments, lol. Yeah, I have fallen for that line before ;-)
Anyhoo, wanted to know if anyone here grew and had actual experience with it it and what their general opinion was of it. Also, how do you think it stacks up against A. 'Sweet Laura', which I have read is also another cultivar stated to be hardy in z5 and possibly lower?
