Sadly, they're all annuals, although someone posted here that there is a perennial variety, but, have yet to see any.

These were seeds from the dollar store-3 pks for $1. Best money I ever spent!

Lulu...that was a lot of "bang for your buck"...I really wish they were perennial though. Thanks for sharing.

Scrapinthehat....I have had the Allium Christophi for about 4 yrs.

It started to multiply last year so much I will give one to my daughter this year.

The bulbs must multiply as I don't notice them until they are full grown.

I love it...it's pretty carefree.

I only just figured out the soup was on, 'scuse me while I sqeeze in here... Some great garden plants here! So my thing here is, this year I am going to try and slip in a native plant in each letter if I can, and maybe something from one of the botanical gardens from elsewhere, if that is ok with y'all.

Aconitum delphinifolium, the native in the mix here.

American spirit, this gets enormous.

Aloe (in San Diego last year), also HUGE.

Pansy...that's for your reply. Glad to hear I can expect these to multiply in the future. This will be their third year in the garden so I'll keep my fingers crossed for some babies.

Katherine...love all of your additions to the soup. Keep up the good work!
