Description

20-24" tall x 12" wide. Pinball Wizard Allium sports lush spheres of rich purple blooms. Plant them in well-drained, compost-enriched soil in a full sun to light shade location. They will grow up between other perennials and as they die back the perennials hide the wilting foliage. Plant with Delphinium, Oriental Poppies, Iris, and Ornamental Grasses for great effect. Some gardeners intentionally interplant Allium amongst Roses, Peonies, and other perennials, as they have antifungal properties that may help the neighboring plants. At a height of 20-24" 'Pinball Wizard' makes a dramatic focal point when planted in a group, or scattered through the garden for eye-catching blooms that illuminate the whole garden. Great as cut flowers, or let them dry in the sun and continue to add texture all year long. A drought-tolerant pollinator favorite.
