Gladiator Allium Bulbs - October 2022
October is Fall bulb planting season. Most years around here, that means tulips. And last year, it meant planting some new (to me) Alliums like Christophii. This year, I'm not doing tulips up front because we're doing some work with the large (but declining Norway Maple). But, I did pick up two six-packs of Allium bulbs at Costco from Longfield Gardens.
These are Gladiator Alliums. And they're new (to me).
Gladiator allium stand up to 60" tall in flower beds of all kinds, and are delightful when these ornamental garden onions are planted in the back of the border.
Back of the border. Got it. There are more clues on the back of the packaging from Longfield Gardens. They compare these Gladiator Allium to a few other ones - including some I have - like Christophii, Drumstick and Purple Sensation.
