This ornamental species of the genus Allium is an eccentric cousin of the common garden onion. Schubertii Allium bulbs produce huge umbels of flowers that look like tiny explosions frozen in time. Each flower cluster forms a sphere about 30cm (12″) in diameter, atop 40cm (16″) tall stems that are very straight and narrow. Allium schubertii is native to North Africa and the Levant, but grows well in North American gardens in full sun to part shade. It is hardy to Zone 5 and quite deer resistant, so it has good potential for visual interest in coastal gardens. Expect blooms from late spring to mid-summer. Our flower bulbs for fall planting ship in September through fall while supplies last.
Two bulbs per package.
