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.
Arising from narrow grassy leaves, the tall and
upright, slender stems present sumptuous thickset globes in blazon crimson-purple hues. An intriguing bicolor effect is created as green buds slowly open from the bottom up. Prized by bumblebees, the long lasting, 2 in. wide blooms assure a breathtaking summer spectacle en masse with swaths of
Echinops ‘Blue Glow’ and Monarda ‘Violet Queen’ interspersed.
Size: 2' 0"–2-1/2' high x 5" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Allium sphaerocephalon (P-1093)
