Allium atropurpureum

Allium atropurpureum

Heirloom variety makes a dramatic statement with 3" showy umbels of deep reddish-purple florets atop 34-36" sturdy stems. When planted with daffodils and tulips, Allium atropurpureum draws the eye away from fading bulb foliage. It also attracts butterflies and other pollinators when it blooms from May to June. For the best effect, plant allium bulbs in groups. Like other allium, Allium atropurpureum makes an excellent cut flower. It's easy to grow in well-drained soil, will tolerate poor garden soil and naturalizes well. Deer tend to avoid.
