Huge heads of pinkish-purple, star shaped flowers that have a metallic sheen. Plant in sunny, well-drained locations and enjoy for years to come. Great in containers.
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!
