Millennium Ornamental Onion
15" tall x 18-22" wide (Propagated by division). 'Millenium ' provides lots of gorgeous, butterfly attracting flowers in late summer when the garden is most in need of color. I have come to adore this Allium for its numerous virtues; attractive, shiny deep green foliage, profuse display of bright rose-pink flowered globes, vigorous growth rate, and excellent deer and rabbit resistance. Best of all 'Millenium' is a fool proof companion plant that looks great with many other summer blooming perennials. This superb hybrid is difficult to find in the trade. It was originally selected in 2000 by Allium maven Mark McDonough.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
