Bring your outdoor space to new heights with Allium!
More plainly referred to as a flower from the onion, chive, and garlic genus, Allium makes a great addition to your garden –just as it does to your food. In fact, only a few types from this family are cultivated for aliment purposes. Out of approximately 500 species, most have been used as decorative accents.
At the top of slim grass-like stalks, grow dynamic spheres of purple petals. Their tall shape and heavy top, makes them an ideal candidate for adding architectural flair to outdoor spaces. Use Allium to border gardens, or as a surprise element among rocks. Better yet, pair it with roses and other seasonal plants to fill in any gaps with a punch of splendour.
As easy as it is to plant it, it is just as easy to care for. This perennial is not pretentious at all! Accommodating to most types of soils, Allium will grow in full sun as well as dark and damp locations. It is so indifferent, that some species will even thrive in drought.
So don’t confine this beauty to your veggie corner, it begs to differ!
