Allium Serendipity Green Shoots - First Spring - March 2022
I planted a (new-to-me) variety of Allium last Summer with Serendipity Allium in the IB2DWs bed - in a little colony of three plants. I've had a lot of luck with Allium Summer Beauty and these are similar, but are a little bit more 'strap-y' in their foliage, so when I found them, I knew I could put them to work in the garden. When I was out looking for tulip tips coming out of the mulch, I came across some green shoots - from these Allium. See below, a photo showing the little green foliage that has emerged for the first Spring on these in this bed next to our driveway.
This past weekend, we had what is known (around here) as False Spring. Where we get temperatures up in the seventies. That makes gardeners like me what to get out and start Spring clean-up. But, I also know that we'll get more snow (and we did...on Monday). So, you have to resist the temptation to pull any of last year's dead material away from these tender, green shoots.
