Write a Review
Plant in average, sunny beds among earlier-blooming species to add balls of rose-pink flowers in spring.
Item #: ALCANs
Binomial Allium canadense

Meadow garlic adds a short, soft, grass-like texture with showy clusters of light pink (sometimes white) flowers in areas with lots of sun or partial shade and average, well-drained soil. It grows from a small bulb distinguished from other onion bulbs by a mesh-like covering of thin, tangled fibers.

Allium species attract many different bees and other beneficial insects. Deer may reluctantly nibble meadow garlic as it is one of the first plants to green up in the spring while rabbits seem to avoid this plant.
