With their crimson-purple flowerheads standing on slender green stems, these wonderful alliums look like drumsticks! Flowering in May and June, they'll look simply stunning wherever you plant them. You could also cut them for fantastic indoor displays.
Related to onions (but don't eat them!), they are very tough and hardy, and they are great for beginners.
They will get bigger and better every year and are an absolute magnet for bees.
