Substance, beauty and pest control for the summer garden

Do you want to know the biggest complaint we’ve heard about Summer Beauty Nodding Onion Allium (Allium angulosum ‘Summer Beauty’)? “I love it so much I have to be careful not to overuse it”!

In April its mounding grass-like foliage gives good substance to the just-waking garden. Late June and July welcome pretty round lilac flowers that cover the plant like drumsticks. If you don’t deadhead it you get to see the show change as the flowering stems turn reddish yellow, contrasting with the dark green foliage. Then, when winter comes barreling on, leave the flowers to dry on their stems for a beautiful textural show the rest of the season.

Summer Beauty is a team player. It blends well with so many other colorful flowers, has a soft roundish form that compliments other plants in the garden (whether in bloom or not!), and is sterile so that it doesn’t create extra work by seeding itself around and growing where you don’t want it.

We’ve heard reports that the subtle onion scent keeps aphids away from your flowerbed, too!

Summer Beauty Allium will help you have a long-lived, stylish, healthy garden. Order your today!
