    Cold-Tolerance of Alliums. Alliums are more cold-tolerant than most people believe. Here are my observations of killing temperatures for outdoor crops. Note that crops often survive night-time lows in the hoophouse that would have killed them outdoors. Alliums are predominately purple flowering although there is a blue form, careruleum, and a very attractive yellow variety, Allium moly (golden garlic) which has umbel type flowers in the summer. Alliums have an additional bonus that the flower heads look good as they fade and as the seed heads form, illustrated below right.

    If you want your alliums to grow closer together, plant them about 10 centimeters apart. You can plant several bulbs in the same area if you do it this way, creating a stunning, en-masse look. If you want them scattered throughout a particular area, simply plant the bulbs several inches away from each other.
