Huge balls of purple flowers that the bees love and are exceptional for drying. Plant them at the back of the bed for a surreal ‘bowling ball in mid air’ look.
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!
