It seems like there's no limit to the companions for Allium 'Globemaster.' In the Lloyd Border at our nursery, this long-stemmed beauty holds its own planted next to shrubs or among perennials, which will help hide its leaves as they go dormant. By early summer, the large, purple spheres of 'Globemaster' seem to float above the electric orange-red blooms of Oriental Poppy 'Turkenlouis.' The juxtaposition of complementary colors is as opposite as the flowers' texture—soft crepe vs. a stiff bouffant. Enjoy the same effect in your garden with our collection of 3 Poppy plants and 6 Allium bulbs.
Winter Protection for Zones 3–6: In the fall, leave new foliage on your plants and mulch with a loose material, such as evergreen boughs or pine needles, after the soil has frozen to a depth of one inch.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

I bought a few of this item in the fall of 2012 with the expectation that I would have those beautiful allium and poppy in my garden. Unfortunately, not one of the poppy produced a bloom. The Allium are great and I have had a lot of nice compliments on them.
Maybe the poppy needs a year or two to produce a bloom.

I ordered one of this collection several years ago and planted in my full sun bed.. Of the 3 poppies, only 1 survives. That one however is thriving and currently is sending up 4 buds. The other 2 never reappeared after the 2nd year. Of the 6 alliums, only 2 survived - however those 2 have reproduced so I at least now have 6 again. For the price I guess I expected a better survival rate in my Z7 garden.
