Bloom Time Depends on Where Your Alliums Are Planted!!!
When your alliums will bloom will depend on exactly where it is planted in your yard or garden
In general, expect the following:
- If alliums are planted in an area of your yard that receives full sun they will bloom around the same time every year or up to two weeks early due to warm weather and extra sunlight.
- If alliums are planted in an area of your yard that received partial sun they will bloom around the same time every year.
- If alliums are planted in an area of your yard that receives shade and is not protected from wind or rain they will bloom anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks.
