I wasn’t sure whether either one of these summer blooming bulbs were going to be successful this year or not. The Yorktown Alliums were purchased at the The Learning Garden Plant Sale last May and the foliage died back shortly after with no blooms that summer. Then this past fall new green foliage started emerging to my surprise. Now I found some buds forming this past week so it looks like I’ll be getting blooms soon. I’ve also planted Foxtail Lillies in the past with no success. However, after seeing all the gorgeous blooms during a roadtrip me and Janet took to Brent & Becky’s Bulbs last summer I had to try again. Look I have foliage, all five of the bareroot plants have successfully emerged. Hooray!
