This item is available for purchase in early May. Shipping of this product begins in mid-September.
Allium is the perfect addition to a mixed border. The unexpected shape adds drama and texture to any planting. Here is a blend of 5 very easy to grow Allium in pink, purples and white with varying bloom times. Naturalizes well and enjoys sunny, hot and dry areas. Bulb size 12-14cm in circ.
Plant 20 cm bulbs 10"-12" apart and 6" deep; 10-12 cm bulbs 8" apart and 4" deep; smaller bulbs 3"-4" apart and 3" deep.
All thrive in sun and will tolerate some shade. Although Alliums are drought tolerant, they will do best in soil is that is well drained. The tall varieties should be planted in groups of at least 3 bulbs toward the back of the garden: the shorter varieties in groups of 6-10.
The foliage of many larger alliums, withers just as the plant blooms, so plant behind bushy perennials, such as daylilies or hostas.
