Appealing Allium Collection
A charming blend of medium-sized rounded spheres, Alliums bridge the gap between your spring bulbs and summer-flowering perennials. In varying heights, shades of purple and white flowers float above the foliage and add interesting texture and shape to any garden. Easy care, Alliums multiply naturally and can be left undisturbed in the same area for years. Butterflies adore Allium, but they are not favored by deer and rodents.

Allium General Information

Late blooming ornamental plants that work great with early flowering perennials. Do not plant too closely together since they multiply rapidly. Plant Alliums in full sun in early fall. Water well throughout the growing season. These sensational spring blends contain flower bulbs that are complementary in height and bloom in unison. Plant in sunny, well-drained soil.*Please note: We are not permitted to ship Alliums to Idaho or the Washington counties of Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant or Klickitat.

Allium Plant Care

The smaller varieties of Allium should be planted 4" deep and the larger varieties 7-8" deep. Spacing 6-8". 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. Foliage should not be removed until it is spent to promote bulb strength. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
