Plant Features

Schubertii Allium Plants, also known as the Tumbleweed Onion, are a marvel to have in the landscape. Huge 12-inch blooms resemble a red sparkler and add interest to any area. They easy to grow, make excellent cut flowers and attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. This explosion of beauty tolerates heat and drought while deer and rabbits tend to avoid them. Recommended spacing for fall planted Schubertii Allium bulbs is 5 inches apart at a depth of 8 inches.

So unusual!

I was so excited to see such an unusual bulb option on the site! Can't wait to see it bloom. The bulbs arrived plump, firm, and dry ready to drop in the ground!
