Write a Review
Plant in dry, sunny beds among earlier blooming species to add balls of rose-pink flowers in fall.
Item #: ALSTE
Binomial Allium stellatum

The large purple balls of flowers are fantastic late in the year. Bees love fall glade onion. Long, narrow green leaves appear in early spring, die back in early summer, and are followed by 12 - 18 inch flower stalks in fall. Plant them in sunny, dry beds among earlier-blooming species or in a bed with the other allium species to have allium flowers nearly all year long. Fall glade onion is edible and strongly flavored.
