Allium Landscapes provides a full landscape service from layout to planting, maintenance and ongoing design. The allium plant is a vine that can be found growing wild in most parts of North America. As a vine, the allium plants can be trained to grow up as tall plants or bushy bushes. This species of plant is most often seen planted as landscape plants in large, green, open areas such as near ponds and by large trees in golf courses and along roadways.
Bushy upright landscape plants are an excellent choice for covering ground spaces in a formal setting such as a gazebo or in the front yard of a home. Busy plants are easy to maintain as they don’t need much attention, pruning, weeding or fertilizing. They are a good choice for smaller areas where you want the beauty of large plants but don’t want the extra work required to maintain them. If you have more room to dedicate to your garden and would like a more natural look, choose taller plants, such as alliums and gateway and creeping rocks.
There are several varieties of albums and each one has its own distinctive smell, texture and color. Some alliums smell like garlic and others smell like sweet potatoes and others smell like a blend of spices. You’ll also find a few varieties with a strong citrus odor and those that are pungent and taste like lemons or limes. Most landscape plants can be used to enhance your vegetable garden or as a natural deterrent to insects, such as aphids. Alliums provide an intense, spicy aroma that repels many insects, especially those that feed on plants with a sweet taste.
Plants that attract hummingbirds and other small birds to your garden are a great addition to your landscape planting. Hummingbirds are drawn to alliums because they contain a chemical that makes them stop flying over your plants and start dancing on them. This behavior is similar to that of a bird that is eating its way through an apple tree. These birds love to eat the sugar within the alliums and seeds. You can attract them to your garden by providing different kinds of Hummingbird Friendly Plants.
On the other hand, if you want a cool breeze and moist soil for your plants, consider planting alliums in the form of cacti. Cacti are very easy to care for and grow great plants. Many people who do not have the space for a large garden choose cacti because they do not grow too fast and offer an elegant accent to any landscape. Cacti are also very easy to maintain and provide a cool atmosphere for your plants.
You can also plant alliums that look more like small forest trees. If you are looking for allies that will bloom all year around, choose hairy alliums or those that grow close to the ground. There are a lot of albums that you can choose from; you just need to know what to look for in your area. Other than looking at the landscape, knowing about the albums you plant will help you choose the best plants for your garden.
For example, hairy alliums require the same amount of moisture as other albums. However, they also need a lot of sun exposure. If you live in a place that gets a lot of sun, then you can purchase plastic plants that will withstand the heat of the sun. Just remember to move them periodically to avoid stress and disease.
You should try to grow a mix of albums in your landscape. Not only will it add interest to your garden, it will also make it easier to maintain. As you begin to plant your allies, take the time to learn more about each type of plant and the maintenance requirements for each plant. Once you have this information, you will be able to choose the right plants for your garden. So, get started with planning your album landscapes today!
