Alstroemeria- Peruvian Lily-Christmas Pickings

Got this plant at a roadside where the owners were giving away excess plants. The plant we took was the Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily) also known as Christmas Pickings or New Zealand Christmas Lily.  Coming from Peru it may tolerate dry climate so will put some in the dry garden and the rest in Avocado garden.
