The striking round blooms are full of tightly packed starry florets that pollinators, honeybees, and even a few hummingbirds are drawn to!

#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.
