There is something spectacular about Allium’s architectural presence in the garden. Also called Flowering Onion or Persian Onion, Alliums’ unique globe-shaped flower clusters offer the ultimate early summer show. Plant bulbs in fall among perennials, where they will enhance your garden between spring and summer blooms, and where fading foliage will be hidden by growing perennials. Leave flowers standing for visual interest through the fall and winter months. Alliums are favorites of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Easy-to grow Alliums are drought tolerant, unappetizing to critters, and are nearly pest-free. They will thrive in the garden and return each spring for years to come.
