Bring majesty and elegance to your garden this summer with deer-resistant Azure Alliums. Stately stems are topped by deep blue star-shaped florets that form attractive, regal globes in early summer. The blooms retain their intense colour for over a month, and make excellent dried flowers. These perennials are well suited to being the feature in a perennial bed or adding height, interest, and texture to borders and summer beds.
Thriving in hardiness zones 4 to 8, Allium caeruleum tolerate well-drained clay, loam, or sandy soil and full to half sun. With a medium growth rate, Azure alliums reach 18 to 22 inches in height with a small spread of under 6 inches. Plant these pest-resistant Allium bulbs in the autumn at a depth of 3 inches and spaced 2 to 4 inches apart. You'll be rewarded with striking, dramatic blooms in early to mid summer.
Providing bright splashes of colour throughout early to midsummer, low maintenance Allium caeruleum are a great choice for casual and expert gardeners alike. Alliums are not only pest-resistant, they also repel some pests, making them a natural for placement near vegetable gardens. Because of their tolerance, you can also plant these allium bulbs in tubs and containers for a dramatic effect on the patio. Bring style and texture to your garden with enchanting allium bulbs.
