I have Miss Manner's obedient plants in pots along my front porch. They are tall enough to peek behind the boxwood shrubs. In May, Globemaste Allium come up and give me a flower with height. I'd like something that will bloom before Obedient plant (mine bloomed in June/July---but I guess that was because it is a first year plant--it should bloom more like July/August next year.) so that I can have something flowering there throughout the summer. Also, I would really like the flower to be white.
Am planning on overwintering the obedient plants (and dividing them in the spring) by burying the pots in the ground in the backyard.
