These jewel-toned beauties take off right where early bulbs like Grape Hyacinths leave off. In late spring--every spring--with this mix, you'll have a fantastic multicolored display. Great for the front of the garden; great for naturalizing anywhere. Enjoy!

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 American Meadows Allium Bulbs Rainbow Mix:

    It's early yet in their first season, but so far the only color showing is purple. Still, there does seem to be a good response from the number of bulbs planted and they're suitable companions for the space they share with columbine.

      Comments about American Meadows Allium Bulbs Rainbow Mix:

      With help from my neighbor (a trained plant person), these seeds went in last fall. With the strange weather we're having here in St. Louis MO, they've been coming up for several months now, and still coming and flourishing. The rain has helped greatly. The colors are gorgeous. Glad I finally got them in.

            I tried these thinking they would bloom before the Tulips, but I was wrong, they haven't done anything except grow taller each day without any blooms or buds. I think it said they bloom late spring, but in the south, late spring can mean summer already. I'll let you know when they do ever bloom.

                  I tucked these bulbs into my garden last fall and forgot I bought them. Imagine my surprise when they grew and bloomed this spring! These are not the big, tall alliums, but are very colorful and petite. They make an attractive addition to my garden.

                      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
