They have all flopped and are laying on the ground. I may need to plant them in a different part of the garden should I try them again.

The stems did not seem sturdy enough to hold up the flowers so was disappointed - we've already taken them out. We have other Alliums so know what they should look like.

Some flower heads much smaller than others. A few had such thin stalks they fell over.
Not as white as I had hoped.
