An airy, fanciful addition to summer borders, this new cross of two favorite Ornamental Onion forms combines the best of both parents plus hybrid vigor. Its irregular spokes (from Allium schubertii) explode with star-shaped florets tinged the deeper violet of A. atropurpureum.
The genus Allium (the Latin means "garlic") offers colorful, distinctive, and long-lasting forms that are standouts in the early summer garden. Alliums are sun-lovers and prefer well-drained, even sandy, soil. Deer, mice, chipmunks, and related predators generally avoid this group, so you can plant with impunity. Tuck them among clumps of summer-flowering perennials where the Alliums' withering foliage will be hidden by the expanding perennials. For more information, click Growing Guide.
