Got Alliums?

Stamford, CT(Zone 6b)

With the northeast's easy winter/early spring, all our alliums have been growing for a few weeks, and some already have produced their main bloom stem. All of the bulbs are erupting early. I cannot help but believe that lots of gardens are getting more sun because the leaves on the trees are just beginning now.

Starting to get a bit concerned. If all the perennials bloom early, there won't be much left but a few annuals, the sedum, dahlias and caladiums. Have alliums bloomed in other parts of the country?

It is going to be an interesting spring and summer here in the northeast unless we can put some bulbs in later.
