Common name: Ornamental Onion
Clusters of robust, lush foliage develop in the spring, followed by vibrant lavender globes 2" in diameter that attracts plenty of butterflies throughout the summer months.
When crushed, the foliage emits an aroma of onion while remaining deer and rabbit resistant.
The edible parts of this allium can be used in culinary recipes, and its flowers are ideal for dried flower arrangements.
