Details

15" tall x 18-22" wide (Propagated by division). Allium 'Millenium ' provides lots of gorgeous, butterfly attracting flowers in late summer when the garden is most in need of color. We 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 Allium 'Millenium' is a fool proof companion plant that looks great with many other summer blooming perennials. This superb allium hybrid is difficult to find in the trade. It was originally selected in 2000 by Allium maven Mark McDonough.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Allium Millenium:

    Initially, I put the allium in a spot in my yard to mature because they didn't look like much. At the beginning of the third year I transplanted the allium to my front entry area and they eventually grew to about 12-15 inches wide. I planted them around a yellow/magenta floribunda rose. To say they look stunning would be an understatement. I am an avid flower lover and these are now my most favorite flower of all. The blooms on my allium lasted throughout the summer. I'm buying more.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Allium Millenium:

      I planted these in a perennial garden surrounding a water fountain. They arrived in very good condition, packed well, and looked healthy. There was not shock when planted, but I was pleasantly surprised when they bloomed the very first year. I am sure they will only get larger and more beautiful as they mature.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Allium Millenium:

      This plant looks great no matter where you place it. I have included it in formal and country gardens, as well as in my meadow garden. The plants get bigger and better every year. They really take the heat and sun, but will also do well in part shade. The plants are easy to transplant, and you can break up a large clump and have two nice clumps flowering by mid-summer. Just beautiful!

            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).
