 return every year Allium moly, also known as golden garlic and lily leek, is a Mediterranean plant in the Amaryllis family. This plant is a perennial bulb, which is edible and also used as a medicinal and ornamental plantAlliums offer a wide diversity of color, height and blooming times. They will tolerate a poor garden soil and love the sun. Many species bloom in early summer - just after the spring-flowering period and just before the exuberant full bloom of summer. All species can be used in the border. Certain small species are just perfect for a rock garden, and several lend themselves to naturalizing. 1. In the Fall, choose a spot that is somewhat sunny and has nicely well-draining soil.

2. Planting allium bulbs is fairly simple. Bulbs look much like a small onion, with wiry roots growing out of one site and a spike on the other. Plant with the roots pointing down and the spike pointing up.

3. Follow the rule of thumb when planting bulbs and give the bulbs at least 2 times their height of soil above them. Dig a 3-4 inch deep hole, drop the bulb into it and cover with soil. 

4. Regarding the spacing between bulbs, if planting in beds, leave approx 3 inches between each cluster of bulb. If you are planting in containers, you can space them a little closer together. 

5. After planting, water well so that the soil above the bulbs settles.

6. Allium bulbs will begin to flower in the late Spring. After the flowers die down, the plant can enjoy a warmer rest period. You dont have to water too much during this rest period. Leaves will also die back and at this point, you can choose to tidy up the plant and remove the old leaves or just let nature take its own course.
