tall x 6-8" wide. Star of Persia Allium is a garden essential for
easy-to-grow high impact color and form. Globes of purple flowers light up the
late spring garden with long lasting blooms that will carry the garden into
summer in style. Each flowerhead has up to 100 florets, making them bee and
butterfly magnets. Plant these hardy bulbs in compost-enriched, well-drained
soil in a sunny spot. At 16-20" in height, they are perfect in a perennial
bed or border. Plant them in sweeps for a dramatic effect. Allium will come up
before most perennials, and as they die back, perennials will cover their
wilting foliage. Plant with Delphinium, Oriental Poppies, and Iris for a
beautiful display. Allium are lovely as cut flowers, or let them dry for year
round interest and dried bouquets. Drought-tolerant once established.
