Such a winner! Summer Drummer has interesting purple stems that grow to 4-6' in height and are topped with very large, 8" balls of purple and white florets!
Alliums, or ornamental onions, are easy to grow bulbs that are increasing in popularity. They look wonderful in cut bouquets and make a unique accent in any perennial border or bed. If you have problems with deer or rodents, Alliums are an excellent choice as they are snubbed as distasteful. Oh but the bees love 'em!
