These alliums are named...AFLATUNENSE. They are the same as the picture. There were 8 bulbs in a package. I'm planting these in the background all together. They will get 24 - 30 inches tall. They bloom in late spring.
I think these will make a nice addition to my garden. They were $5 a package. My other bulbs haven't come yet. I hope to get them soon, so I can get them in the ground. I don't always follow the directions in when to plant. I plant them when I am comfortable outside...not on a cold blustery day. I don't usually plant them as deep as they say, so mine don't always come back a second year. We don't have many squirrels and bunnies...so they are safe planted not quite so deep. If they come back...wonderful, if not...I'll have to just buy more.
It's supposed to get down to 30 degrees this weekend. I brought my amaryllis and Christmas cactus in yesterday. They are in the basement just waiting for buds to come.
