ADVANCE SALE - SHIPS LATE MARCH - APRIL 2019
Allium 'Blue Eddy'
Common Name: Ornamental Onion
Ships As: Perennial Bareroot #1 Grade
Alliums are charming plants for the rock or herb garden. When the foliage is bruised, it smells like onions since they are in the onion family. This selection was named for its attractive, pinwheel-like rosettes of blue-grey to grey-green foliage which resemble “small swirling eddies of water”. It forms a very compact clump of strongly swirling leaves which range a bit in color depending on the season and sunlight. From late summer into early fall, 1.5" rounded clusters of light lilac pink flowers stand atop leafless stems like lollipops. Be sure to plant them where they won't be hidden under larger plants.
