Alliums may be the easiest plants you’ll ever grow. The only tricky thing about them is remembering that they need to be planted in the fall, at the same time as tulips and daffodils. If you haven't already ordered allium bulbs, do it now so you won't run the risk of forgetting to get them into the ground.
Did you know there are more than a dozen different types of ornamental alliums? Some are short and some are tall, some have flowers the size of an egg and others are as big as a cataloupe. They also have different bloom times, so if you plant several different varieties, you can have alliums in bloom from April through June.
