(36-48" tall) Ambassador Allium (also known as Ornamental Onion) has huge, 6-8” globe-shaped blooms, made up of hundreds of star-shaped violet flowers. Pollinators will love Ambassador Allium just as much as you do. To enjoy a succession of giant Alliums, plant Globemaster Allium Globemaster, Ambassador Allium, and Gladiator Allium. Plant in groups or drifts for the most visual impact; they pair well with Oriental Poppies, Peonies, Bearded Iris and other late spring bloomers. Ambassador Allium prefers well-drained soil and full sun. Deer resistant. Plant bulbs 6-8” deep. (Allium Ambassador)
