Allium sphaerocephalon, commonly called the drumstick allium or round-headed garlic, is a showstopping variety of flowering onion. In July and August its dense, egg-shaped or drumstick-like flower heads on thin, elegant stems start green and then mature to maroon-red.
It looks its best when planted en masse in the front of beds and borders and in containers – and with 50 bulbs, you can make several bold plantings. It prefers a sunny position. Like all alliums, it is easy to grow, undemanding and comes back year after year to produce gorgeous displays. The flowers are loved by bees.
The large bulbs are guaranteed to flower in their first year.
