allium

When i first got these bulbs about 6/7yrs ago they grew about 6ft tall and the flowers where the size of a saucer, each year they get smaller and smaller and the colour keeps fading.

I grew these for the first time this year (planted last Autumn) and the Mont Blanc too, these were quite short in comparison to the white, so perhaps they'll grow taller next year...and mine have been and gone already :o((((

Wow! so many though Carol...they're fantastic! I bought mine early spring last year from the sale in B&Q, this is the first time they've flowered and they are like yours, about 4ins across.....

They are lovely! Shame they seem to be getting smaller each year for you. :-(( Do they get plenty of sun? These are from hot arid areas which get a lot of sun.

I have a few miniature ones on my balcony, yellow & white. The white are in flower now but I've seen no sign of the yellow flowers this year but the bulbs are still growing as I recognize the foliage.
