Allium nigrum graces the garden with fragrant white blooms from late spring to early summer. Each 3-4 inch flower head is filled with densely packed florets bearing a bright green eye. Standing on long, sturdy stems, the flowers are excellent for cutting and drying. This easy-to-grow heirloom, also called Black Garlic, is irresistible to pollinators and looks stunning when planted en mass, spreading overtime to fill in the garden.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
Growing Alliums: The Allium family includes onions, leeks, and chives, but the ornamental varieties have become increasingly popular with gardeners thanks to their unique beauty. Globe-shaped flower clusters float above thin, elegant flower stalks. Allium bulbs are planted in fall, and bloom in late spring, bridging the gap nicely between spring-blooming flower bulbs and early summer perennials, such as Peonies, Poppies, and Salvia. For a pop of color and texture, plant Alliums in groups, or plant among perennials. Within their hardiness zones, they will return year after year and may naturalize and spread over time. Leave spent flowers standing to add interesting texture to your garden through the fall and winter.
