Fun, Unique Spring Color: Allium Bulbs

Not to be confused with its relatives from the allium family (garlic, shallots and onions), Ornamental Allium are purely decorative and cannot be used in culinary dishes. They are, however, some of the most unique and easy-to-grow Fall-Planted Bulbs, adding height and texture to the spring garden year after year.

Did you Know Fall is the Perfect Time for Planting?

As the summer winds down, it’s never too early to start thinking about fall and what additions or subtractions you might want to make to your garden. More and more people are learning that fall provides a “second season” of planting and that it’s not just about maintenance and clean up in the garden!

Create a Blooming Spring With Little Water

Drought and limited water resources have become a challenge for gardeners throughout the country. However, this does not mean that gardeners with limited water resources cannot enjoy beautiful blooms – It is all about choosing the right plants. Fall-Planted Bulbs such as Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Crocus, and more are extremely drought-tolerant and only require initial watering when they are first planted, producing gorgeous blooms come spring.
