Allium General Information

Alliums as a genus are easy-to-grow and come in a 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. Allium Lavender Bubbles is not used for culinary purposes. Butterflies adore Allium, but they are not favored by deer and rodents.

*Please note: We are not permitted to ship Alliums to Idaho or the Washington counties of Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant or Klickitat.

Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Allium Plant Care

Alliums multiply naturally and can be left undisturbed in the same area for years; however, clumps may be lifted and divided in either spring or fall. Allium will tolerate most soils, but performs best in sandy soils. Add organic matter like compost to clay soils if needed to improve drainage and lighten the soil.
