Plant in the fall, Allium Gladiator (also known as ornamental onions) for gigantic light purple blooms!

Planting Crocus bulbs in lawn ~ my step-grandma did this with one in the centre, with a circle of bulbs around it- she planted all white. Perhaps I'm easily impressed, but I thought it was so pretty. The lawn is ready to be cut by the time the crocus is done blooming. Clever.

Everlasting Alliums! Next year I am growing these. Love this photo

Allium: Zone 4-9.Partially sunny/sunny. Among the most carefree bulbs you can grow, alliums bloom in a wide range of colors, seasons, and sizes (from inch-wide heads to volleyball-sized bloom clusters). Alliums offer whimsical structures and great textural contrasts unique to the late-spring bulb garden. Clustered florets in a globe-shape flower head are held aloft on a thick stem. In the species, loose bouquets of flowers sprout from clustered, hollow stems.


Rosemary is the easiest to grow and it grows quickly, so if you're looking to add topiaries to your garden or porch, this is the best plant to choose! It's also easy to propagate, so in a short time you can have a lot of plants!
