Allium 'Purple Sensation'

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 22:35

I bought them as Purple Sensation and was so excited about them.  Mind you, I'm in Scotland and all the flowers in my garden are weeks behind.  But I think you are right nutcutlet, paulk2 - they look too pale.  The tallest is about 18".  I was expecting much taller.  Planted them in in October with the Spring bulbs.  The pack was labelled 'Purple Sensation' as I ordered.  I am so disappointed.

Abies koreana?  Mature?  Korean fir.  Not sure about it though - can't see it clearly in your photo.  Hope someone gets it right for you.

 I ask because I have groups of them all over the garden and they have all been as in this photo for a week now with little change.  Some have very pale lilac flowers at the bottom.  Everyone else's I've seen are that beautiful deep purple and I'm wondering if something has gone wrong with mine - or if this is a normal stage before they form a bowl of purple.

....or do they open pale and then turn purple when they form into a ball?

Munstead Wood is a dark claret with a strongish fragrance.  Roseraie de l'Hay is dark and perfumed I think.  But you probably have something more modern.

Hi everyone.  I've cut off most of the spent flowerheads from these bergenia  (front left) but have left a couple of stalks.  Does anyone know if these look like I could get seeds from them as they are and how to go about it?

Not swallows or swifts?  You would know by the wing shape.

Does it do it silently or does it make a lot of noise as well?  Can you hear it before you see it?

Hi Chris.  How lucky you are to have red clovers.  I haven't seen them for years even in the wild!

My camera is appalling for macro as well.  I'm sure it has some function which does it and I haven't figured it out yet.  It's a Sony Cybershot and it's driving me nuts!
