(Amur Adonis, Fukuju-so, Ganjitsu-so)

The Greek God Adonis represents life, death, and rebirth much like this sweet spring ephemeral. A truly magical early season bloomer, the low-growing Amur adonis produces large, glossy, semi-double buttercups towards winter's end. The traditional Japanese name "Fukuju-so" translates to "good fortune, long lived plants". Another old Japanese name is "Ganjitsu-so", which means "New Year's Day plant", referring to its early bloom time. Wild specimens naturally exist along open grassy slopes or wooded...

(Winter Pheasant's Eye)

Similar to the Asian Adonis amurensis but larger overall and better adapted to drought, winter pheasant's eye also has a broader area of distribution existing across much of Eurasia. In the wild, this spring ephemeral inhabits dry fields, roadsides and montane grasslands. Its golden flowers light up the landscape in late winter or spring and disappear by late spring. Occasionally, plants escape from cultivation; wild populations are known to exist in New York State's Westchester County.

(Onion)

This is an enormous and diverse plant genus. The onion family contains about 1250 species of herbaceous bulbous or rhizomatous plants that can be found across north temperate climates worldwide. All are perennials and cultivated forms are either grown for their ornamental flowers and foliage or as crops that yield edible greens and bulbs, such as onion, garlic, chive and leek. Species may be deciduous or evergreen and some are ephemeral.

Ornamental onions run the gamut from tiny groundcovers...

(Beau Regard Ornamental Onion, Ornamental Onion)

This excellent allium hybrid displays enormous, rosy-purple flower clusters on tall, sturdy stems in late spring to early summer. Its starry, individual florets are packed densely in rounded globes that can be as large as 8 inches (20 centimeters) in diameter, adding instant drama to mixed beds and borders. They rise from low rosettes of bold, strappy, deep green leaves that remain attractive while the plants are in flower, unlike those of many other alliums.

In autumn, plant the bulbs of ‘Beau...

(Firmament Ornamental Onion, Ornamental Onion)

This gorgeous ornamental allium graces the garden with globes of starry, silvery-purple blossoms in late spring. The rounded, softball-sized flower clusters are borne on sturdy, slender stems which rise above strappy, deep green basal leaves that emerge in spring and fade as the plants bloom.

In autumn, plant the bulbs of ‘Firmament’ in fertile, well-drained soil at a depth of two to three times their diameter. Full sun is essential, and dryish summer conditions are preferable. Plant in small...

(Gladiator Ornamental Onion, Ornamental Onion)

The dense, rounded flower clusters are borne singly atop tall, sturdy, bare stems which rise above deep green, broadly sword-shaped basal leaves that emerge and spring and wither as the blossoms appear.

In autumn, plant the bulbs of ‘Gladiator’ in fertile, well-drained soil at a depth of two...

(Globemaster Ornamental Onion, Ornamental Onion)

Appearing in late spring, they are borne singly on tall, sturdy stems which rise above bold, strappy, deep green basal leaves that appear in spring and fade as the plants bloom.

In autumn, plant the bulbs of ‘Globemaster’ in fertile, well-drained...

(Ornamental Onion, Pink Feathers Ornamental Onion)

A summer-blooming ornamental onion, 'Pink Feathers' bears wispy clusters of pale pink-lavender blossoms. This hybrid perennial grows from bulbs that slowly reproduce to create a clump. Each bulb produces slender, light green leaves that may slightly twist. The leaves look resemble a wispy rosette. The rounded flower clusters comprise hundreds of tiny six-petaled flowers that are visited by bees and butterflies. No or few seeds result from pollination, making 'Pink Feathers' less of a spreading weed...
