What's Blooming In Summer



If you're planting allium bulbs, be sure and plant then in clusters, as they look a little bedraggled if planted alone. A relative of the onion family, their foliage isn't much to rave about, but the blossom is showy and is long lasting in bouquets.

I love aliums and keep meaning to plant some, they look fantastic in a vase with cow parsley.

i wandered around the garden last night and realized that wherever i looked there were shades of purple. i've unconsciously put in lots of purple plants. not alium. yet!! steven
