Shaggy rounded blooms like landing pads for pollinators, the Miami Allium (Allium 'Miami') is a fantastic perennial flowering bulb in the Onion family! The big clusters of tiny starry florets are a deep reddish-purple full of nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies and look fantastic focal points in your summer bouquets!

Standing up to 3 feet in height, these fast-growing blooms are held aloft on strong stems and backed by upright green foliage. Both are hollow like their Onion family relatives and stand up against the wind and storms of the early summer weeks.

Wonderfully spreading and naturalizing and creating polite colonies throughout the sunny landscape of USDA growing zones 3 to 9, and are cold-hardy and heat-tolerant with no deer or rabbit issues.

Planting and Application:

You'll definitely want to include these perennial bulbs in your bulb gardens and cutting gardens! That way you will have armloads of Miami Allium all spring to bring in and decorate your home while leaving many outdoors for pollinators and to add interest to garden beds and borders! Cottage gardens, Rock Gardens, and perennial and bulb beds gain unique color and interest! Children love Alliums and the whimsical blooms spark their imagination!

Miami Alliums looks fantastic as a designer addition to garden borders for height and vertical pops of color, especially when used in long, uniformly spaced rows or in groupings to dramatically highlight the intriguing blossoms! Pot up in containers and planters around your seating and entertaining areas, or add accents to porch pots and balcony planters!

  • Bright Reddish-Purple Round Flower Clusters
  • Green Foliage & Strong Stems
  • Nectar-Rich Pollinator-Friendly Blooms
  • Unique Blooms for Floral Arrangements

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Loving full sun in cooler climates and appreciating partial shade in hot climates, any rich, well-drained soil is perfect for Allium. Fall-planted bulbs need moderate moisture needs. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy and add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Despite being a member of the Onion family, there is no Onion smell unless the foliage is broken or crushed. Deadhead to remove spent blooms or try this trick - spray paint the dried seed heads any color you choose for unique garden décor for the rest of the summer and fall!

  • Full Sun For Strongest Growth
  • Well-Drained Soil Of Any Kind
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Mounds After Leaves Yellow
  • Squirrels, Rodents & Deer Seldom Bother These Plants

The sunny Miami Allium will add its unique interest and fantasy to your garden beds and borders this year! But only if you order yours today at Nature Hills! We'll ship your order to your doorstep at the proper planting time for your growing zone in the fall!
