All About Allium, Part 8

This beautiful photo is supplied by quackingrassnursery.comAllium thunbergia Ozawa, or Japanese onion, is a long blooming flowering bulb that grows in September. When strategically placed, it will combine well with other fall perennials such as Coreopsis, Anemone and Sedum. Because it is a short plant - it reaches only 12 inches high - its floral spheres appear larger than they are. Flowers are soft and star like in shades of purple bordering on dark pink, almost fuchsia-like. This bulb is hardy in zones 4 to 9 and is suited for full sun and part shade.

I recently saw a lovely allium that was a light lavender color with almost silver foliage. It was planted with some artemesia and was just long blooming and lovely in this very hot, hot spot. Do you perhaps know what it might be called?

If you are in the corner and have got no cash to move out from that point, you will require to receive the credit loans. Because that should aid you unquestionably. I get short term loan every year and feel myself good because of this.
