Carrying an easy-going informal and structural formal look as well as adding drama and whimsy anywhere they're planted!

Each forms large round spiky balls of tiny flowers that look like sparklers or stars!
Also known as Star of Persia, Alliums appear in mid-late spring from among dense clumps of grassy foliage that carry the family oniony smell. As unique and textural in the garden, these are incredible blossoms for focal points in mixed containers, as solitary grouped specimens or as the feature in a grand bouquet!
You'll definitely want to include these perennial bulbs in your bulb gardens and cutting gardens! That way you will have armloads all spring to bring in and decorate your home while leaving many outdoors for pollinators and to add interest to garden beds and borders!
Elegant Allium Blend looks fantastic as a designer addition to garden borders, especially when used in long, uniform rows or groupings to dramatically highlight these intriguing blossoms! Pot up in containers and planters around your seating and entertaining areas, or add accents to porch pots and balcony planters!
Allium love the full sun and can also tolerate partial shade, especially in the hottest of its preferred growing zones. Plant in very enriched, well-drained soil and provide just enough water to get established. Deadhead to prevent seed spread, or spray paint the dried flower heads for lasting garden interest! Leave the foliage intact to make food for the bulb, then prune in autumn once the leaves have yellowed.
Elegant Allium Blend is the perfect pick-me-up for your garden beds and borders! NatureHills.com ships in autumn just in time for fall bulb planting season based on your growing zone!
