<i>Allium christophii</i>

As the straplike leaves die off, Allium christophii sends up stout stems topped by sculptural blossoms. The spherical heads, an airy array of delicate amethyst stars, span nearly 10 in., and are almost too big and too beautiful to be real. Breathtaking in borders and bouquets, Star of Persia’s fawn-colored seed heads dry perfectly. Plant a drift in a well-drained spot and surround with the leafy, long lasting foliage of Geranium ‘Buxton’s Variety’. This Allium withstands both deer and rodents in our garden.

Blooms June.

Size: 2' 0" high x 8" – 10" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.
