I was at two Kirkwood-area garden stores last weekend and couldn't find any Giant Allium bulbs. A lady next to me was also desperate to find some....they are the hot bulb! Well I did find a bunch of them at Summer Winds Nursery on Clarkson Rd....30% off, though they are still $5.50 a bulb. They better come up....my bill was over $100. I hope I have a real show in the late Spring! I hear some people spray paint the old blooms when they dry out.
