Description
Allium Graceful has globe shaped blooms that are made up of clusters of small, pristine white flowers with lavender stamens. They grow to 16" tall and are deer and pest resistant.

About the Alliums. Every family has its beauties. And yes, these are the best-looking members of the family of Allium, which includes onions, leeks and chives. (The word, Allium, means 'onion' in Latin.) Many Allium species are native to Iran, where many tulips also originate, and the edible Alliums have been cultivated and a staple of diets for over 10,000 years.

The beauty of the small lavender flowerheads of chives have always been a decorative highlight in herb gardens. But in recent years, gardeners have become fascinated with the larger Alliums, particular the giants. As always, the Dutch hybridizers took them into their stocks, and now we have a whole group of beautiful new flowering onions for gardens. Most bloom in late spring so they bridge the gap nicely between the tulip season and early summer bloom of peonies and poppies.

Experienced gardeners plant these giant Alliums in groups of several bulbs, set very close together. The foliage is not attractive for long, so it's important to plant them next to other perennials whose foliage will more or less cover the Allium's base. This way, the wonderful flower stalks rise up and tower over the other flowers for a wonderful period of bloom.

        Comments about Allium Bulbs Graceful:

        I planted these bulbs in good soil & with tons of sunlight. Only 2 plants (out of 10 total bulbs) grew. The flowers were TINY!!! The flowers were maybe 1cm which is nowhere near the 2-3 inches this site said they would be.

              I was very disappointed that these did not grow. I have some purple ones planted by the previous owner of our home, and planted these nearby, in good soil, with fertilizer.
