flower of the day, friday, april 6
these delicate little blooms are typically available in the market in purple during the later spring and summer months. it was thursday that i stumbled upon these sweet, petite blooms at one of my favorite vendors, kelley wholesale! and too boot, in my FAVORITE color, white! they look so dainty in our arrangements at the shop! perfect for the easter and passover holiday weekend.
allium is available for zones 4-8 as a plant to add such beauty to your garden.
"It is worth mention that Alliums, like Daffodils, are deer and rodent resistant, thanks to their faint oniony scent. The odor is not noticeable above the ground unless the leaves are cut or bruised and many of the flowers have an enchanting, sweet scent. There are hundreds of species within this delightful and under-appreciated genus, and we have struggled to restrain ourselves to a reasonable selection. They are reliable perennials when they get good drainage and plenty of sun." -white flower farm
come by the shop and pick up some lovely white allium!
