I agree, Spritz. I planted some for the first time last Autumn and am pleased to see they're about ready to open.

I planted this last year and also wanted to plant the white one but I have been told they really spread, do you find this Spritz?

This one doesn't, more's the pity, Denise. I haven't tried a white one - but I've heard that, too...maybe it's worth a question?

Very pretty.

I've been trying to eradicate this from the garden as it spreads and seeds everywhere here - drives me absolutely nuts - and flops dreadfully. Apart from that, quite pretty.

Oh dear, I may remove mine to pots after they've flowered . . .

But - mine don't spread??? I've had them in for three years, and they just haven't.

Drc726 received a warning from Owdboggy about these - and it's included in our very own goypaedia. If yours are so well behaved it's probably becaus they are scared of what you would do to them if they didn't, lol.

I found this about them Wagger
'Bulbous plants vary in their mode of reproducing, sometimes showing more than one means of doing so. The pretty but alarmingly invasive Allium roseum, for example, forms undergound bulbils and also aerial ones, formed at the base of flowers, which fall when fully ripe and rapidly colonize the surrounding ground'.
I do find what spreads in other garden does not always spread on my heavy clay, especially by seeds as I hoe.

Well, I'm finding it harder to get rid of than Japanese Knotweed. :-((

I bet it's because they can't find the soil in my garden! LOL. Poor you, Wagger. I'm sorry these pretty plants are a nuisance to you.

Thanks for the info, Denise!

Well I still love mine.

I'm going down the garden to eat worms.
