Allium cernuum 

Allium cernuum blooms in mid summer with nodding clusters of purplish-pink flowers. It's a native wildflower and a terrific self sower. It spreads to form a dense patch, which qualifies it as a groundcover.

Allium cernuum tolerates a wide range of conditions from sandy or rocky soil to damp clay. It likes full sun or part shade, and it's easier to grow than some of the species.

Also known as Nodding Onion. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 3-10.

height 14"
