A species Allium that has been around for centuries, 'Drumstick' flowering onion still impresses in the perennial gardens of America. Dating back to the 16th century, this terrific naturalizing heirloom has dense, egg-shaped composite flowers that open green and mature to rich crimson-purple. Perched atop wiry, yet strong stems, 1" to 1 1/2" wide, round, composite flowers dance in the breeze. The individual florets open from the top down on the composite flower creating a more egg-shaped appearance as it matures. Best planted en masse, perfect for thick drifts in mixed perennial beds, meadows, and natural settings. It is one of the most cost effective of all Allium and is rabbit, squirrel, and deer resistant.  Bees, butterflies and other helpful pollinators will find it's nectar irresistible. Height: 24".

We cannot ship Allium bulbs to Idaho, or to the State of Washington Counties of Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant, and Klickitat.
