No bloom 2nd year Allium schubertii???
So I bought two Allium schubertii bulbs the fall before last and planted them in the garden. Last spring they came up without a hitch and bloomed nicely. This year they sent out the foliage (albeit smaller than last year) but no blooms? What gives? I haven't been digging much, if at all, in the areas they are planted. Haven't added a top dressing of soil (so as to bury them too much). Am I mistaken that these are supposed to come back and bloom year after year?? My 'Purple Sensation' Alliums (planted many years ago) didn't come up this year either now that I think of it. Maybe just a bad year for the Allium? Any way to get the schubertii growing again? Lift and replant maybe?
Thanks for any ideas you can come up with for why these didn't bloom second year! It is much appreciated...
