I recently recieved some Alpine Pink Rosy Bells bulbs, but have no instructions on how to care for them. Can you help? I don't even know what they'll look like when they bloom!

Your Alpine Pink Rosy Bells are 'Allium orephilum', and are perfect for a rock garden planting. The plants grow to 12 inches high, and the flowers are red. These alliums spread readily by forming bulblets on the original bulb, which break off andbegin new plants. Plant your bulbs 5-inches deep and space them 3-inches apart. They appreciate well-draining soil and a sunny spot.
