The Tumbleweed Onion: A Schubertii Allium

  • A Floral Firework Show
  • Violet and Dramatic Florets
  • Easy to Grow Heirloom Variety
  • Great in Containers

Among alliums and other garden flowers, the Schubertii Allium sure stands out. This festive and firework-like display of florets is ideal for making a statement and celebrating all that spring has to offer.

Often called "the tumbleweed onion," it is easy to fall in love with this eccentric beauty. While it may look like it got its inspiration from the punk era, this heirloom allium was actually introduced in the late 19th century.

The Schubertii Allium is happy to add height to your spring bulb planting. Atop tall, strong stems, the Schubertii Allium's seed head sparks a symphony of fun flowers that will entice you to come in close to examine just how complex yet impressive this allium is. Unlike many of the other large-blooming alliums, the Schubertii Allium's florets don't follow the rules. They shoot outward at seemingly random lengths for a radiating show.

From the Schubertii Allium's umbel, you'll find each tiny mulberry colored bloom has its own stem of varying length and each has a charming green center.

Because each tiny floret has a mind of its own, they bloom from late spring into early summer. And after the blooms fade, the fantastic and fun seed head remains.

Where does such a composer of smiles deserve to be planted? The Schubertii likes full or partial sun and well-drained soil. It also gains a lot of attention as a front or middle planting.

Are you ready for a symphony of fun and delight as spring turns into summer? Order your Schubertii Alliums today.

We will ship your bulbs based on the correct planting time for your area.
