At 40 inches this is one of the tallest Alliums available and does best in well-drained sunny locations at the back of borders and beds. Bees love these large purple flower balls.
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!
