There are two types of allium here, globemaster and purple sensation. The taller ones are globemaster.
Last, but not least, I have entered a friendly rose contest on Garden Buddies to simply see which rose will bloom first--for fun. At first, I entered Perfume Delight, but she croaked. I had entered her as an underdog, as she was the worst looking rose in the yard, and this week I decided she really was not going to grow. I have been allowed to enter this Cl. Pearly Gates in her place. Here's what she looks like now:
Hopefully she'll send up some buds with those leaves soon. Of course, pictures to come...
Have a great day everyone.
