<i>Allium</i> ‘Gladiator’

Allium

Ornamental Onion

Our selections are embellished versions of the common culinary bulbs. Prospering in a sunny, well drained site, these pest resistant Alliums add flair to the garden, your favorite container, or an arrangement; they are attractive either fresh or dried.

Allium ‘Gladiator’ full sun

True to its name, ‘Gladiator’ is a crowd pleaser that asserts fantastic giant globes shouldered by tall hefty stems and rugged sword-shaped green basal foliage. Vibrant purple blooms, 4 to 5 in. wide, exuding a sweet yet pungent aroma, are composed of tightset green-eyed florets with a metallic luster.

A hybrid between Allium hollandicum and most likely Allium macleanii, this Allium can be staged throughout a stand of white and yellow Verbascums for spectacular colors and divergent flower forms.

Blooms May – June.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 8"–12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
