Perfectly round, 6″ spheres of rich purple florets keep the garden drama going after 'Globemaster' is finished and before Allium giganteum comes on the scene. Blooms are well supported on tall sturdy stems and provide a strong vertical flourish for borders, wonderful with Peonies and late Tulips.
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.
