We have aliums!

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!


  1. I am insanely jealous because I think the squirrels took of with my giant aliums.

  2. Weird...but great! My giant aliums come up every year, but are less "giant" each time. May yours be gargantuan!

  3. i've done the same thing and haven't seen a giant or small allum in the past two years...we'll see if they ever show up...this gives me hope, at least...
