Schubertii Allium

Like brilliant, glowing fireworks in the sky, this unique allium features an explosive flower form that draws plenty of attention from garden visitors. Schubertii is moderately tall with straight and strong, 12-24" stems that keep the giant, 9-12" rose-purple flower heads upright and highly visible in the landscape. Plant in borders alongside other early summer perennials for a look that is anything but ordinary. They also make a magnificent showing in decorative pots, cut-flower bouquets and arrangements, as well as rugged rock gardens. Schubertii loves full sun and can be planted virtually anywhere that has well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant and deer resistant. Alliums are not available in ID or WA. Allium 'Schubertii'
