I'm sure these little green seedlings coming up are allium. Anyone ever successfully raised these guys to a full blooming flower? How long does it take? I'm assuming they will not flower this year. ?

Can you share some photos of the seeds and seedlings?

I scattered the seed pods last fall myself, wondering if anything would come of it.

I planted some bulbs of some kind of variety of them this past fall. They haven't bloomed yet hear.
So good chance they will.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Those are your baby alliums. They look like onions and they are right by the seed head you threw out there.

Several years from seed to bloom size. Smiling
