Fall under the sweet spell of Graceful Allium. These majestic alliums bloom in early to mid-summer and grow 16 to 18 inches tall. Prepare to be dazzled as groups of both white and pale pink flowers cluster together to form stunning orb-shaped blooms. Each flower is complemented by delicate lavender stamens, which pop against these flowers' pastel hues.
Grace your summertime garden with these whimsical white alliums by planting them in the fall. Alliums dislike water-logged soil, so make sure to bury them in well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil, about 3 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. These Dutch-sourced darlings equally enjoy bathing their bulbous blooms in full sunlight or cooling off in partially shady areas. They are hardy in zones 3 through 9 and naturally deter deer and other pests.
Native to North America, these perennials naturalize easily and are a beautiful addition to wildflower gardens. To draw attention to their unique blooms, consider planting your allium bulbs in front-facing borders. These white alliums will look wonderful when paired with purple and blue irises and large, bicoloured dahlias. This petite strain of Allium amplectum 'Graceful' can also be used to add delightful detailing alongside walkways or gates, or can be planted in rows beside houses and sheds. Make your summer garden exude elegance with this graceful allium.
