How are your Alliums doing?

Stamford, CT(Zone 6b)

We added a bunch more Alliums this past fall, and I think they are already sprouting. Varieties that are new for me from 3 different vendors It is a long season here because the different varieties bloom at different times. Usually the biggest bloom first, and those bulbs are planted the deepest. I just don't know when to expect some of the new ones.

The first photo is from last spring (4/9/12). The foliage is still fairly attractive before the blooms. The second and third from May 27, 2011. Drumsticks from June 23, 2009 did not open before July. The last is from May 12, 2012 (they are not all round).

I am anxious to see if A. schubertii will grow this year. Does anyone have them in bloom yet?
