Dividing Summer Beauty Allium - October 2022
Third in the Fall dividing for "free plants" in our garden post series. First was the roundup of 22 hostas. Then, yesterday I showed three net new ferns. Today, I'm sharing a look at my first attempt at dividing some Summer Beauty Allium. I have a couple of colonies of Summer Beauty in our backyard beds. First, the one closer to the house. I dug up one of the Allium and divided the bulbs to make a second plant. I tucked the original one back in the same hole. See below for the 'after' - the division came out of the Allium in the middle of the photo:
Here, below, is what the clump looked like:
I decided to plant this one trial division in the sideyard, in between a couple of the Disneyland Roses:
I repeated this trial exercise with another of the larger Summer Beauties in the further-back-section. I took from the plant at the very top/middle of the photo below. And dug it into the spot at the very bottom/middle of the photo below:
