16-20" 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.
