    Also called Drumstick Allium as this is what the shape of the flowers of these ornamental onions look like. Both the purple-red flowers and chives-like leaves are very decorative and good companions to perennials like Astrantia, Geranium and lavender. Drumstick Allium grow 2-3' tall with dainty round blooms. Plant in full sun for the best show of flowers.

    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. Drumstick Allium should be planted 4-5” deep with spacing of 2-3”. 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.

    Very pretty accents

    These are very pretty if you intend them to complement other flowers. I planted them alone, and they looked rather stark, so I'll probably dig up the bulbs in the fall and plant them amongst other flowers. I think all of them came up.

    I really love these! The only problem is that I accidentally pulled a bunch up thinking they were weeds in early spring. Lesson learned! It looks a lot like onion grass when they come up at first. I'll most likely have to reorder this fall to replace the ones I pulled up as I only have a few now blooming. (I caught on, haha.)

    Great value for what I hope will be an unusual flower. Arrived as promised in October in packaging with helpful planting depth. Hopefully squirrels won't get them before the spring.

    Cons:
    The drumstick allium get a lot bigger than they look in the pictures. I thought they would be small and put them at the front of a flower bed, but they got really tall (tall as a Gladiator allium, except more floppy, not straight), so I dug them up and moved them to the back of a bed. The bees LOVED them and the flowers lasted a long time.

    Great bulbs

    I was very pleased when I received my order. Bulbs were very fresh and packaged well. I planted them outside for blooming in springtime. We have gotten a warm spell and they are blooming already. These were on sale and I received free shipping which is always great.
