Giant Allium Mixed

Description
These two varieties of allium are useful in a perennial border because their whimsical starburst flower heads add texture and form variation—you can't help but admire their unusual shape. They grow 24-36" tall on sleek, sturdy stems, and appear like floating globes above the other plants. They also bloom later than most and last for weeks in the garden, bridging the gap between your spring and summer shows. The blooms are up to 5" across, and they add a chic touch in bouquets and dried arrangements. Beneficial pollinators will be thankful for the treat, but deer won't bother alliums. Allium aflatunense, Allium nigrum
