Description

6–12” tall x 6-12” wide. ‘Blue Eddy’ is one of the most intriguing alliums to come along in years! A low-growing variety, this ornamental onion is known for its tightly-whorled, grass-like foliage that appears on the grayish-blue side of green. Arriving as a potted plant, this perennial allium can be added to the garden throughout the season, unlike the tightly-followed tradition of fall-planting allium bulbs. Blooming in late summer and into fall, ‘Blue Eddy’ has attractive golf-ball sized, pink-purple flowers.
