No longer available this season.
Allium Violet Beauty blooms in late spring to early summer, with 4-6"-round, lovely, violet flowers. Sweetly fragrant, this Allium (Ornamental Onion) grows from 20-24" tall, making it perfect for perennial beds, borders or with ornamental grasses. Allium Violet Beauty is an improved variety similar to the extremely popular Purple Sensation Allium. Easy-to-grow, it’s a perfect choice where low-maintenance, pollinator-friendly, deer- and critter-resistant flowers are desired. Happy in sun to part shade locations with well-drained soil, they are ideally planted in a perennial bed where the perennial’s foliage will cover the Allium’s leaves as they die back.

Violet Beauty Allium is another garden star from the Allium genus. At 20-24" it makes a great companion to other, taller Allium (Ornamental Onion) where a symphony of color can be created by varying flower heights. Plant them with ornamental grasses where they can wave in a breeze, or even in a container (if protected from hard freezing). Plant in fall, six weeks before frost and your neighbors will be amazed and delighted by the late spring show your Allium will put on. Allium are best planted in groups, 9 bulbs per square foot. They make great cut or dried flowers too and can be left standing in the garden for winter interest. These blooms are pollinator favorites, but deer, rabbits and squirrels tend to stay away. Allium are a first choice for easy gardening. Allium Violet Beauty is an improved variety similar to the extremely popular Purple Sensation Allium.
