18-24” tall x 18-24” wide. ‘Summer Beauty,’ like most alliums prefers full sun, but can also tolerate part shade. Its spectacular globe-shaped flowerheads are made up of small delicate blooms that attract pollinators to their nectar. ‘Summer Beauty’ is a good choice for high-impact border plantings, and for planting in clusters throughout the landscape where their unusual pompom shapes help to break up monotony add a new sense of dimension. Unlike the majority of alliums that are planted in fall as bulbs, ‘Summer Beauty’ is available as a perennial plant that can be added to the landscape throughout the season.
