Description

Allium 'Star of Persia' Bulbs - (Allium christophii)

This Allium is one of the joys of June. At 18" tall, the heads can be almost half that size across and are made up of star-shaped, amethyst colored flowers, each touching the next - giving a light but solid effect.

When the heads become dry, they maintain their shape for months in the garden or indefinitely if brought indoors.

Allium

There are a large number of Allium species, including edible onions, garlic, and chives as well as many ornamental plants. Typically, they produce rounded heads of flowers, often in rosy purple shades. They range in size from small-growing to over 3' tall.

Growing Conditions
  • Best in full sun but will tolerate light shade.
  • Plant in fall. Cover bulbs with soil to three times their height.
Flowering
  • Flowers in late spring and summer.
  • Cut alliums when about half the flowers are fully open.
 Tip
  • Many alliums make excellent cut flowers. They are usually long lasting in water, and the dried inflorescence that remains after the blooms have fallen can be used successfully in dried arrangements.
  • Alliums are deer resistant.
