No longer available this season.
Prairie Onion (Allium stellatum) is an uncommon bulb-forming wildflower native to the Great Plains and Midwest. Showy globes of lavender-pink flowers appear in mid-summer and are highly attractive to pollinating insects like native bees, honeybees, and butterflies. Suitable for challenging sites, including dry, sandy, and rocky sites. The plants are uneaten by rabbits and deer, and will naturalize and multiply by reseed in the garden.
