Eight More Summer Beauty Alliums Planted - June 2020
This photo above shows seven new Summer Beauty Ornamental Onions (Alliums) that I planted just to the West of the Fanal Astilbe border. I planted eight total with one other new one joining the previous four that I planted earlier this Summer. These eight (well...7 + 1) are part of "Priority Area #1" that I wanted to plant this year that called for 12 total. I planted these about mid-way back in the bed with the thought that I could - maybe next year - supplement these with a border (closer to the edge of the bed) of annuals in front of the Allium.
If you zoom in SUPER close to the photo above, you'll see that there appear to be some flower buds that have shot up in the middle of the clump. So, I'm thinking that we'll get *some* flowers this first growing season. Have a look at the red arrows for the 'curl'ing up' flower buds that are emerging:
