Some Allium Leaves Wither And Die

Question From: WASHINGTON
Q: Alliums came up this Spring all right and green as usual but then sections of the leaves started to die leaving withered lengths running the length of the individual leaf. This is happening to several plants an the clump.

A: It is not unusual for the leaves of spring blooming alliums to begin to wither while the plants are blooming or even before. It's mother nature's way. If they make you crazy you can remove them, but you may shorten the life of the bulb. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
