When the weather cools in fall, it’s time to plant spring-blooming bulbs. Most of the familiar ones are from faraway places: tulips have their origins in the Mediterranean region and Asia Minor (Turkey), and daffodils originate from southwestern Europe. There are a number of bulbs that hail from North America, but they are less commonly used. Among these natives are more than 100 species of alliums. Most native alliums originate in western or midwestern parts of North America. Nodding onion (Allium cernuum) is one of the few allium species whose native range includes the eastern United States.
“Noted” items are particularly good finds from my daily reading which I share via all my social media accounts.
