Allium christophii
LILIACEAE, The lily family

Early summer’s best bulb. These flower heads are metallic balls of stars, 12″ across. Summer bulbs are such a great idea. They are easy to over look when planing and planting, but they add so much summer to a garden. Callas, cannas, dahlias, oriental and asiatic lilies, martagon lilies! It you haven’t enjoyed Sargent’s ‘Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose’ for a while, do. It could hold one over for a little while longer though this dull, chill weather.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
