Allium christophii

A. albopilosum, The Star of Persia. Circa 1884, this robust, long-lasting species has immense, loosely compacted 8”- to 10”-wide globes comprised of over 50 starry, amethyst-violet florets with prominent metallic shine and green eyes (ovaries). Bulb size: 12 cm/up. May/June. 18” to 24”. HZ: 4-8.

The Flowering Onions are rabbit-, rodent- and deer-resistant, and are seldom affected by disease. Adored by bees, butterflies and pollinators, Allium extend the spring flowering season, and are valuable cut and dried flowers.

Allium require full sunlight, rich, well-draining and neutral pH soil and can benefit from a summer dry period. All Allium must be planted outdoors in the fall after the soil has cooled down to around 55 degrees F (normally after two weeks of night time temperatures hovering around 40 degrees F).

Plant 6" to 8" deep and 8" to 10" apart.

We are very sorry, but due to state agricultural restrictions, we are not permitted to ship Allium bulbs to Idaho, or to the following five counties in the State of Washington: Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant and Klickitat.
