Allium Millenium, Ornamental Onion

2018 Perennial Plant Of The Year

A stunning beauty, Millenium Ornamental Onion, Allium, is adored for its profusion of flowers and ease of care. Its compact, upright clump of glossy green, thick and strappy leaves emit a slight smell of onion when crushed. In mid to late summer a profusion of large 2″, bright rosy purple, tightly rounded clusters of flowers appear on strong stems just above Millenium Allium’s attractive foliage. 

A landscaper favorite! It’s thick, emerald green leaf blades look great in and out of bloom, making Millenium Allium ideal for mass plantings and edging in formal and cottage gardens.

Bees, butterflies and other pollinators adore it, deer and rabbits leave it alone.

Plant in full sun.

 

Millenium Allium has won the prestigious award the 2018 Perennial of the Year by the Perennial Plant Association. The Perennial Plant Association is an association composed of growers, retailers, landscape designers and contractors, educators, and others that are professionally involved in the herbaceous perennial industry.
