Allium 'Millenium'

Ornamental Onion

'Millenium' forms a compact, upright clump of glossy green, thick and strappy leaves which emit a slight smell of onion when crushed. In late July and August, a profusion of large 2”, bright rosy purple, tightly rounded clusters of flowers appear on strong stems just above the attractive foliage.   Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers' sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty.   Height: 15-20 Inches Spread: 10-15 Inches Flower Color: Purple  Foliage Color: Green  Sun or Shade?: Full sun to part shade Want to see wings?: Attracts butterflies, bee friendly Need critter resistant plants?: Deer and rabbit resistant   *Photo and info courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
