    Allium are bulbs if your in their zone pretty fool proof. Once i found a clearance sale of $1 a bag of bulbs, I filled a shopping cart full. I had like 10 bags of allium, going on my 3 summer enjoying them

    I would have done the same that's a good price. I will probably try and grow them next year I am trying my hand at elephant ears this year but they don't seem to be growing :hu but I will have to wait and see maybe they will decide to spring up.

    I would think the elephant ear would do well in Alabama, here they are annuals or to be dug and stored indoors for winter. They are VERY slow to show signs of growth. Welcome from Eastern IOWA :frowHere is a photo of my oldest grandson with an Elephant ear about 7 years ago. 001 - Copy.JPG

    Elephant ears here never die, they freeze back and come back year after year.

    Welcome to TEG from a Alabama transplant to here in VA. I've got lots of family down around the center of the universe (Alex City).
