Allium 'Millenium'



Description

A spectacular ornamental onion forming an upright clump of glossy green, thick, strappy leaves; a profusion of lilac-purple rounded clusters of flowers in mid-summer; impressive when massed in groupings; great as a long lasting cut flower. Millenium Ornamental Onion features bold balls of lightly-scented lilac purple flowers with purple overtones at the ends of the stems in mid summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive glossy sword-like leaves remain dark green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
