This award winning Allium is one of the showiest of all the ornamental onions.Its globe heads can span 4-5” and feature up to 100 tiny, star-shaped violet-purple flowers, all atop sturdy 2-3’ stems. “Globe Alliums” appear after early blooming bulbs such as Daffodils but before Summer flowers burst into bloom. Their starburst flowers last well into Summer, good news for bees who adore the nectar-rich flowers. Luckily, they aren’t on the deer menu. Group several for an impressive effect and combine with lower growing, Sun loving plants that can fill in the lower parts of the plants, as leaves can brown before flowering is done. Alliums prefer neutral pH, well-draining soil. Allow foliage to die back naturally to feed the bulb for future years’ growth. Flowers are long-lasting in bouquets.
