Description
This mixture gives you a great new burst of bloom in late spring...ten inch fireballs of yellow, white, and pink rise quickly and open with sizzling color.

About the Alliums. Every family has its beauties. And yes, these are the best-looking members of the family of Allium, which includes onions, leeks and chives. (The word, Allium, means 'onion' in Latin.) Many Allium species are native to Iran, where many tulips also originate, and the edible Alliums have been cultivated and a staple of diets for over 10,000 years.

The beauty of the small lavender flowerheads of chives have always been a decorative highlight in herb gardens. But in recent years, gardeners have become fascinated with the larger Alliums, particular the giants. As always, the Dutch hybridizers took them into their stocks, and now we have a whole group of beautiful new flowering onions for gardens. Most bloom in late spring so they bridge the gap nicely between the tulip season and early summer bloom of peonies and poppies.

Experienced gardeners plant these giant Alliums in groups of several bulbs, set very close together. The foliage is not attractive for long, so it's important to plant them next to other perennials whose foliage will more or less cover the Allium's base. This way, the wonderful flower stalks rise up and tower over the other flowers for a wonderful period of bloom.

              Comments about Allium Bulbs Fireworks Mix:

              The flowers hang down so you can't see the color inside. The fountain shape is nice. I ordered the mixed pack and all of mine came out the same darkish purple and white. It's best in the garden and not for cutting.

                    I planted these and nothing came up. What is interesting is, that I planted the Allium Gladiator bulbs right next to them and got beautiful results. ??
