What am I growing?
I transplanted these to my back border in early spring, (and stashed 2 into 2 gallon pots) and thought they were kniphofia. There had been a torch lily in the flower bed that went to seed in the fall, but sadly rotted in early spring.
It would seem that can be ruled out now...but what are they? They did smell faintly onion-ish, and the base looked like a green onion. The foliage is not hollow though, they are solid bands.
I was hoping for alliums when I noticed their smell. Are they a miniature ornamental variety?
Patience is a virtue that I lack.
