Description

12-24" tall, Allium Bulb Unifolium is a pinkish-purple shaggy looking allium.

About the Alliums. 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. 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 smaller 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.
