Allium Globemaster


It has been so entertaining to me, watching this plant evolve. Pictures span from early March to today.







I bought it as a companion to the rose in the background, which has been fairly chewed up the last few years. It seems like it's working, so far the rose bush looks pretty good. I really like this plant for itself, though. I was considering cutting it to take inside, but the bees also seem to be enjoying it so I guess at least for this year, I'll leave it be. How I wish I had a whole bunch, but as I recall, this one bulb was $10!

What a beautiful allium! I've always wanted to plant one -- but since we're a little sun challenged, I can't seem to find the right spot!

I love Allium, Karen! How nice to see the evolution from peeking out to full bloom - thanks!
Cheers!
