Also known as Nectaroscordum siculum var. bulgaricum. These creamy, bell-shaped blooms tinged green and pink hang from baseball-sized flowerheads, and the gray-green leaves take on interesting spiral twists. The papery, tan seedpods turn upwards as they mature. Will self sow. For us, the bloom time of Allium bulgaricum overlaps with that of Tall Bearded Iris and Baptisia.
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 Allium's withering foliage will be hidden by the expanding perennials.
