Onion, Ornamental ‘Millennium’
Out of stock
A truly impressive hybrid Ornamental Onion considered to be the best available in years. Compact upright clump of glossy, thick, green leaves with 2″ rose-purple ball clusters appearing just above the foliage on strong stems in mid to late summer. Easy to grow. Leaves have a slight onion smell when crushed. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. This looks best when combined with a bushy, low-growing perennial to hide the withering onion leaves at blooming time; hardy Cranesbill Geraniums are an excellent companion. The fleshy bulbs may be lifted and divided after several years, best done after the leaves wither.
Easy to grow. Adaptable to a variety of soil conditions.
Narrow, deep green leaves.
2" rose-purple ball clusters in Summer.
