Bing Bang Boom Allium Blend (Pkg of 10)
This item is available for purchase in early May. Shipping of this product begins in mid-September.
This blend of 5 different Allium varieties in a wide range of white, mauve, purple and silvery-violet shades is practically fool-proof. Plant in large groups of at least 7 bulbs. Height 18-36". 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.
