Globemaster Allium, 2006
Globemaster in Bud, 2006
April 3: Something in the north perennial bed is about 6 cm tall now and light green, and I think it's an allium. It grew under the snow.

May 22: The buds on the Globemasters are growing and buds have just appeared on the others.
24: The bud on the Globemaster in the main garden has started to open.
July 3: The flower and stem on one plant are 146 cm tall! The blossom on the Globemaster, now finished but still interesting, has a diameter of 19 cm.
August 1: The flowers are finished but I have left the dry blossoms on their stems in the garden for interest's sake.
September 20:  I bought 5 bulbs from Schriemer's. Three were $13.99 altogether and should produce flowers the size of softballs. Two were Globemasters (Allium christophii x A. macleanii) at $9.99 each and should produce flowers the size of volleyballs!
~23:  I planted them.
