Add an architectural element to the flower border in late spring and early summer with the massive Allium Giganteum. Its 20cm (8") wide flower cluster looms over 120cm (48") tall stems for a very striking look. This perennial is hardy to Zone 4, and will perform in full sun to partial shade. All Alliums are deer resistant, which is handy for coastal and island gardeners. These look wonderful in mass plantings, but stand out just on their own as well. The flowers are fragrant and nice as cut flowers. Our flower bulbs for fall planting ship in September through fall while supplies last.
Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
