Allium

Ornamental Allium includes ornamental onion and garlic. With about 1250 species, it is one of the largest plant genera in the world. These perennial bulbous plants produce chemical compounds that give them a characteristic onion or garlic taste and odor. Many are used as food plants. Ornamental allium has its origins in Central Asia and the Mediterranean area.


Allium has shiny, glossy foliage and produces 12" - 48" high leafless stalks upon which sit tufted globes of color. The late spring and early summer blooms typically have great potential for cut flower production. The blooms last much longer in a vase than your typical flower. This plant attracts bees, butterflies and birds, but disinterests deer and rodents. It doesn't have any pest problems. Depending on how many you plant, they can provide winter visual interest.
