Allium sphaerocephalon "Drumstick Allium"

It doesn’t get much EASIER or low maintenance than “Drumstick Allium”, folks! Drought tolerant, deer & bug proof, cold hardy & long-lived, this delightful perennial bulb bears utterly charming egg-shaped flower heads atop strong, 2-3’ upright stems in Summer. Emerging as deep green buds, the flower heads color shift from the top, turning rosy wine-red to create a fun, bicolored effect. A welcome & pleasing vertical accent in any well-drained garden, it's fabulous combined with grasses. Very cool cut flowers, bees & butterflies galore! Foliage clump spreads slowly & is easily divided. Self-sows, but not invasively.
