How/where/when to plant Allium Sphaerocrphalon in Fort Lauderdale

Posted by qtpi1969 9a (My Page) on

I have searched and found a lot of conflicting information on growing Drumstick Alliums in my area.
Can I plant the bulbs this far south, outdoors? Do I have to dig them up at some point and then replant them later? Are they better grown in large pots? Has anyone actually planted them and gotten them to grow successfully? If so, please share how/where/when with me.
Also, are there Alliums more suited/sure growing for south FL than the Drum Stick ones?

I had the book out, so I looked this up in Garden Bulbs for the South by Scott Ogden. He says this species might be okay, but Ft. Lauderdale is so tropical that I wouldn't risk it. Society garlic would do well, tho.

I see there are cheap used copies available of the Ogden book at Amazon, now out of print. Might want to buy one.
