Summer Drummer Allium blooms to the beat of its own drum! One of the tallest allium available, it also gets 4" diameter blooms! The large ball shaped blooms have many florets of purple and white tips, a real standout in the allium family.

  • Allium require full sun for the best blooms
  • Well drained soil is a must for allium bulbs
  • In heavy, clay and poorly drained soils amend the soil prior to planting. Amend your existing soil by incorporating a combination of top soil, compost, manure, and leaf mold.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 3” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Plant allium bulbs 4-6” deep, with the old roots of the bulb touching the earth, the pointed end should be facing the sky.
  • Spacing will vary based on variety, refer to the Allium packaging for specifics. Plant allium in clusters or space throughout the garden for a neat geometric design element.
  • Immediately after planting, water the allium planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets. After the initial planting bulbs do not require additional watering in fall or winter and prefer to be kept dry.
  • Apply a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

Pros:
  • Striking

These bulbs are insanely tall. I have one about 7' right now. Very cool, they're flowering later than the rest of my alliums too. A whimsical addition to any garden!

I planted these back in the fall and they have really taken off this spring. All three came up and they are about 4 feet high. They are getting set to flower. So excited!

Pros:
  • high quality bulbs
  • excellent communication
  • fast service
  • good prices
Cons:
Good service, fast shipment, high quality bulbs. These are the only bulbs I purchased where I actually hope they DON'T perform up to the description. I loved the picture of the bloom so much that I neglected to read that these suckers can get up to SIX feet high! That will teach me to pay attention. LOL!
