Alliums bloom in late spring or early summer with ball-shaped, fragrant flowers in blue, purple, white or pink.
They are resistant to deer, rabbits and squirrels, attract butterflies and make great cut flowers for a spring bouquet.
Like many spring-blooming bulbs, the foliage is not very attractive so it helps to plant with other perennials that will cover their leaves. (Find our list of companion plants for spring-flower bulbs HERE).
Plant the bulbs in the fall, 5″ to 6″ deep and 6″ to 12″ apart (depending on the variety).
