Pretty - I have some bulbs but not sure if they're hardy here. Do yours stay outdoors over winter?

Thanks. I have had these forever and they stay out all Winter. Very hardy plants. 🤍💚🤍 @gjones

I'll give them a try then. I know you're 2 zones warmer than us but maybe they'll survive in a protected area😊

@gjones I am in zone 6 and these grow like weeds here. They always return, even after the -20 year!!

@gjones I’m in zone 5 and they grow like weeds especially this year all over the garden. Only plant them if you don’t mind them spreading. The leaves die down and are gone by mid June like a spring bulb. 🌞

They really are. I just find it looks messy when the foliage flops over to make way for the flowers. Like a carpet for them. I have them in 2 gardens. They have been with me for 25 years at least. 🤍🤍 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr at least it stays green. That’s what bothers me about alliums, the foliage flopping and going brown. Yours is laying down to protect the flowers 🤍 amazing to have had them for so long 😮

My alliums have just started to do that. At least the foliage stays green. The ones I planted near the fence still have foliage standing. They are really troopers for little flowers. 👍🤍💚🤍 @kez001uk
