Allium cernuum blooms in midsummer 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 makes it an effective 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.
Sowing Allium cernuum Seeds
