We couldn’t resist adding this cute easy to grow Allium to our line of perennials. Easy to grow, the nicely textured single stems rise from the ground in early spring and yield beautiful snow white flowers as spring concludes. The 12-15” tall flowers are great for pops of white in a floral arrangement and the ease of care and establishment make it a great choice for those running a cut flower business. In a garden bed it can be used as a filler among other plants that are already established. It has a tendency to reseed so it can be used to naturalize larger areas.
