Planted in sunny locations with well drained soil these alliums will return year after year. The flowers hang in loose umbels of white, green and purple. Simply stunning!
This particular variety is often mistaken for a Fritillaria and can be counted among one of the most unusual looking, yet most pleasing, Allium varieties. 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!
