    Allium schubertii is one of the most striking ornamental onions: a small rounded flowerhead develops into a second, much larger and more transparent flowerhead. A real beauty which can be easily dried and will last for years in this state. The flower stems grow 12-24" tall. Flowers have shades of white, silver and rose throughout.

    When to plant Allium bulbs?

    Allium bulb should be planted in fall when daytime temperatures have cooled for the season, but before the ground is frozen for winter.

    How to plant Allium bulbs?

    Planting depth varies based on each different type of allium. Allium schubertii should be planted 4-5” deep with spacing of 6-8”. Allium often have a pointed end, that is the side of the bulb that should be planted facing up. If you are not able to tell which side of the Allium bulb is facing up, look for small thin dried roots on one end, that is the bottom of the bulb and should be touching the ground when planted.

    Where to plant Allium bulbs?

    Allium bulbs grow in hardiness zones 4-9 making them some of the most versatile bulbs for fall planting. Plant Allium bulbs in soil that drains well, they do not like sitting in wet soil over winter. Tall varieties of Allium should be planted in the back of the perennial border or mixed in as accents with shorter bulbs and perennials.

    What are good companion plants for Allium?

    Peonies, Bearded Iris, and Oriental Poppies bloom at the same time as Allium. These perennials and bulbs make excellent companions for allium to increase color and texture in the garden.

    What to do with Alliums after flowering?

    Allium flowers will remain in your garden as dried flowers for a few weeks after blooming. Once the stems begin to fade you may remove them from the garden and discard them. To really extend the life of the faded Allium flowers try spray painting Allium flowers and add them to indoor dried flower arrangements.

    Pros:
    • Big blooms
    • Showstopper
    • Bees love them
    • Unique
    Cons:
    These were so incredible! I planted them interspersed with purple sensation alliums and they were just perfect. The flowers were kind of pinkish and they grew a little shorter than the purple sensations, which made for a really nice multi-level/full look in the allium bed. These are HUGE! They look like explosions over a foot wide -- just so cool. And the bees adore them.

    Pros:
    • bloom stock
    • cut flower
    Cons:
    Bought for last spring and the bloom stock is great as a cut centerpiece. Bought more because they look great in the spring through to early summer.

    These are great looking firm bulbs and far superior to any bulb I've purchased from B&B bulbs and these people actually have customer service that writes you if you have a problem. Keep it up T.W
