I've been thinking about purchasing some alliums to grow in a tough spot...dry with some red clay but have been ammending it yearly. Any advice? I'm wanting to grow the really tall ones, possibly "summer drummer".

Yes, all of those tall aflatuense ones do great in heavier soils.         Globemaster, Purple Sensation, Gladiator, etc.   There are about a dozen of them in Brent and Becky's bulb catalog.    They even self sow so you can have lots in just 3 years-it doesn't take long from seed.  May I also recommend trying Eremurus, the foxtail lilly.     They get tall, are really spectacular, and need the same things as alliums do.

"Still looks like that here in Michigan. Checked the 10 day forecast and apart from one day next week no temps above freezing. I am ready for spring any time it decides to get here."
