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 Wild About Allium Bulbs Mix:

      Bought in hopes of preventing deer damage. Planted tulips, crocus, daffodils among the allium bulbs and so far it works. Will set annuals in after bulb foliage fades and hope the allium scent deters critters.

          Comments about American Meadows Wild About Allium Bulbs Mix:

          I planted these in a sunny location to block the view of an ugly electrical box from the street. I planted as the instructions dictated and gave the bulbs some extra mushroom compost for added nutrients since my soil is sandy. I never saw a single one of these bulbs attempt to even grow either last summer or so far this year. This was a complete disappointment since I was envisioning lovely tall blooms making a striking appearance from the street.

                The bulbs I ordered arrived in poor condition. of the 8 in the package I was able to plant 6. We have had a very warm but dry spring. even with regular watering, the product is looking week. half are popping while the rest look like they will not develop into anything to smile about.

                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).
