The scoop on Allium Pink Lily Leek / Oreophilum

Another in the onion family that produces both attractive tousle-head flowers, Pink Lily Leeks bloom in mid to late spring in a deep rosy pink shade that's rare in alliums. These modest size members of what can be a very tall family, are excellent for cutting. Plant in scattered groups of bulbs in perennial beds for early season pops of pink.

Why Grow Alliums?

  • Alliums bloom with bright, lollipop-like purple, cranberry and white multi-floret balls on tall stalks
  • Ornamental onions bloom in mid spring, following the crocuses, hyacinths and daffodils
  • Create an easy, happy flower arrangement by cutting different types of flowering onions and slipping into a tall vase
  • Deer and rabbits aren't fond of alliums
  • Note: This ornamental onion is not edible

Support those hard working pollinators! Alliums are top-of-the-list favorites with honey bees and butterflies.
