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 and a fresh or dried arrangement.

Favored by pollinators and plant purveyors, ‘Summer Beauty’ begets plenteous, large lavender-pink pompoms balanced atop sturdy, 20 in. tall stems. The upright strap-like leaves distinguish a neat polished green basal mound that announces fall with golden highlights. Full of long-lived vim and vigor, this sterile Allium can be ushered into the rockery or a patio pot so its sprightly pastel-hued accents can be relished all summer long.

Blooms June–August

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 12" – 18" wide.

Zone 4/5.

Sterling plants showcasing white, silver and blue; Enliven a low-light spot!

Sterling plants showcasing white, silver and blue....

Blue is a powerful hue that proffers an air of refinement, sensibility and contemplation, while white and silver gleam with an energized lift. Ivory and blue blooms plus silver-laced leaves add cool sophisticated accents, offering welcome relief on a sweltering afternoon. These colors provide niches where the eye can rest, and when intermingled they create a crisp classic aspect. They can also be threaded through hot-themed plantings for a tone down effect!

Enliven a low-light spot...

Many gardeners are on the look out for plants that can tolerate some dappled light or actually flourish in shady recesses. Chosen either for their commanding foliage or enticing flowers, these diverse offerings promise to enliven just about any low-light garden setting.

Happy Digging!
