Allium rosenbachianum

Circa 1894, A. rosenbachianum blooms about two weeks earlier than the other statuesque purple globe Allium. It has loosely compacted, dark violet globes that grow to 4” wide. Its 50+, starry florets have darker midveins and white stamens. Bulb size: 14 cm/up. Late May. 36". HZ: 5-9.

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.
