Mish’s Garden: Alliums and Iris Early Summer

Those with a deer problem may wish to consider deer-resistant plants. At the top of the list are Alliums, Daffodils, Bleeding Hearts, ferns, and Iris.

Those are Siberian Iris in the foreground and purple-on-purple Bearded Iris further back. The round globes are Globemaster alliums.

Alliums are in the garlic family. Deer will not touch them.

Alliums and Iris will come back every year provided conditions are not too wet.

  1. Beautiful! How long does the bloom last on the alliums and do they rebook again or is it one time only?

    1. Alliums – many varieties from a few inches tall to the Globemasters – all come back every year reliably, unlike tulips.
      They bloom once a year in late spring or early summer. Blooms last for a couple of weeks. After they bloom they die, back to the ground. The leaves vanish away.

  2. Beautiful pictures most beautiful and impressive garden Mike! Thank You for sharing again!! Ted
