Jo Anne: Very pretty. I've noticed my allium foliage is already pretty far up. I don't have the one you posted but thanks for posting it. I'll see if they have any in the fall. Yes, shopping around pays. Thumbs up

That's a cool looking allium, Jo Ann! BUT who is that iris??? That's a beauty! Wow!
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.
