Summer Beauty Allium And Christmas Tree Hosta Divisions - Summer Update - August 2023
Late last year, I dug up, divided and transplanted a number of Summer Beauty Ornamental Onions (Allium) around the backyard - including four divisions around the tree-swing Northern Red Oak tree. I also dug and and divided a large Christmas Tree hosta (that I really like) into three new divisions and planted them behind the allium, closer to the tree trunk.
How have those divisions done? In less than one year, they seem to have recovered quite well. See below for a couple of photos showing the Summer Beauty Allium, spaced with some polka dot annual plants and the Christmas Tree hostas behind them:
They are better than what was there before - a ring of hostas. And, I've learned that I can pretty sharply divide Summer Beauty and move them around. Note to self for Fall 2023 dividing.
