Our #1 top-selling Allium. This hardy, long-lived, vigorous grower features large, lavender pink, spherical blooms on strong stems above a tidy mound of green, upright, strappy foliage that turns gold in fall. Its sterile flowers won't seed around the garden. Pollinators adore this plant but deer and rabbits steer clear.
Native to much of the U.S., this species is similar to the wild onion but with a distinctive crook in its flower stems which causes the flowers to nod downward. Its leaves, bulbs and bulblets are edible. Pale pink flowers appear above the grass-like foliage. Will self-seed; great for naturalized areas.
This large-flowered selection of chives features showy, rose-purple, spherical blooms that are both ornamental and edible. Fragrant, grassy green foliage forms a low mound. Market this plant in your edible line and as a very cold hardy perennial. Deadhead to prevent reseeding.

This compact Allium is ideal for rock gardens and looks great in troughs. Showy, non-seeding, lilac purple flowers attract pollinators but deer stay clear of the fragrant foliage.

Discovered as a sport of 'Summer Beauty', this shorter selection presents its lavender pink, spherical blooms just at the top of its green, upright, strappy foliage. It has perfect presentation in containers and is a great choice for gardeners looking for pollinator-friendly, low water use plants.
