Combining interesting flower shapes creates a garden design with texture and depth. The Perennial Plant Association has rightly awarded Allium Millenium the 2018 Plant of the YearŽ! Its globe-shaped rosy-purple flowers add a perky, colorful focus to your late summer garden. Mature plants are covered in dozens of long lasting flowers. Foliage is glossy deep green, grass-like and heat tolerant.

You will love this low maintenance dependable garden workhorse and pollinators will, too! Unlike many Ornamental Alliums, this hybrid is clump-forming and seeding is much less an issue. Bred by horticulture researcher Mark McDonough of Massachusetts. Thank you, Mark!

Allium General Information

Allium Millenium is a standout among Alliums. Alliums as a genus are easy-to-grow and come in a broad palette of colors, heights, flower shapes and bloom times. They provide long-lasting flowers ideal for bouquets and are sunny summer performers. Flowers dry to tan, and have remained upright all winter here in NE Ohio. A. Millenium is not used for culinary purposes.

*PLEASE NOTE: We are not permitted to ship Allium plants to Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant or Klickitat counties in Washington state.

Allium Plant Care

Clumps may be lifted and divided in either spring or fall. Allium will tolerate almost any soil, but performs best in a well drained soil.
