Spectacular airy purple clusters of stars make up this 8" globe flower, beautiful in bloom and afterwards. We let these dry on the plant and then use for decorations indoors, as is or spray painted gold or silver. Once you've grown these, it's hard to imagine the late spring garden without them.
A friend sells the garden-dried flowers heads of this allium at a local farmers market. He always sells out and long ago paid back the price of his bulbs.
This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety.
