Three years ago I planted some giant aliums and some mini aliums. The first year only the mini aliums came up. Second year still no giant aliums. I gave up on them. I figured they rotted away or a fat squirrel dug em up and ate em.
Yesterday I noticed something new in the flower bed. They weren't my mini aliums. It was the giant ones! I have no idea what made them decide to come up this year but I hope they bloom as big as my head!
