Allium Time

It's time to plant your allium bulbs.  They look like a plant from another planet and are so sculpturally beautiful. They return each spring to greet you and the butterflies love them.  What's not to love?


  1. Beautiful! They look very "fairyland."
    I can see why the butterflies like them!

  2. Not just beautiful, but aren't they also very effective as a deterrent for some bugs?

  3. not time here yet! ...but I appreciate the reminder!....very dramatic and absolutely stunning!

  4. Isobel was super excited to see your flowers and the farm in this post. keep them coming!

  5. I have bought these at the florist's but had never seen them growing.
    They are even more stunning, your plants from another planet.

  6. With the drought the past few years... I've had no luck with them the past few years... maybe I should give it a try one more time... am I too late!!

    beautiful! hugs. Dixie

    1. DIXIE, if you are too late this spring, then you can plant them this fall.
