Allium Purple and White


ALLIUM: The Allium is a fall planted ornamental onion bulb. This flower is sure to turn heads with its 4-inch wide globes of tightly packed florets which sit at the top of a tall, thick, bare stem. The low strap-like foliage turns down as the plant blooms, making the spherical cluster of blooms a focal point in your garden. They are great for ornamental value and widely used for both landscape and cut flower purposes. The blooms are pleasantly fragrant and this plant is an easy and prolific addition to the garden. Plant in groups for an eye catching focal point. Alliums prefer to be dry during their dormancy. The Allium is ideal for mass plantings, borders, and cut flowers. These plants are rabbit, squirrel and deer resistant. They have a bloom period of about 3 weeks and they bloom in late spring to early summer.
