3 Allium--Giganteum
 
Lovely lavender to dark violet softball sized heads of florets top the sturdy stems of 'Giganteum' making a fantastic addition to any border. The curled green leaves will wither before the flower appears, so placing them with low growing plants adds a flair of mystery to their presence. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Allium is a beautiful accent for the garden and ideal for dried flowers.

Growing Tip: This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. As this plant tends to go dormant in summer, it is best interplanted with late-season bloomers to hide the dying foliage. A well-drained soil is important – if the soil is too wet, try mixing in a good quantity of sand or grit when planting.

Blooms: Eary Summer
Height: 34-36 in

6 Narcissus--Bantam
An award-winning classic introduced in 1950 'Bantam's' sizzling red/orange-rimmed cup against vivid yellow petals provides a sassy energetic color in any later spring garden. Fragrant too! These are good cut flowers. The bulbs are deer, squirrel, and rabbit resistant.

Growing Tip: All Narcissus bulbs should be planted in the fall once the soil has cooled down to 60°F to 55°F (after two weeks of sweater weather), normally just before or slightly after a killing frost. Narcissus bulbs do everything in response to soil and ambient air temperature and sunlight. Planting Narcissus bulbs too early, before the ground has really cooled down, can cause the bulbs to begin top growth rather than root growth, resulting in immature root development and diminished vitality. Narcissus bulbs can benefit from being planted a bit earlier than Tulips and other bulbs. To plant Narcissus bulbs later in colder soil retards root growth and may result in reduced foliage production and few, if any, flowers in the spring.
