    I have a north facing balcony that gets some early morning (6-8) and late afternoon filtered sun (3:30-6:00). I successfully grew Munsted Lavender and lettuce on it this summer if that works as an indicator of the amount of light I have.
    I love the sight of Alliums flowering in the spring and want to plant some in pots but am wondering if people could suggest appropriate varieties to grow in such conditions. Any other bulbs in pots tips would also be appreciated.

    Thanks for your time and assistance!

    Lavender is attractive only in full sun, so the spot may have enough light for adequate results from any of the dwarf alliums on the general market.
