Carefree Allium Collection
Description:

Why We Love Alliums…
Popping and bursting like Fourth of July fireworks, alliums are an easy way to add impact and drama to your garden. But even though they are best known for their distinctive, round bloom clusters, alliums have much more to offer!

Nature's Pest Control
Hated by deer and rodents but loved by hummingbirds and bees, the allium is an organic gardener's secret weapon! Plant these bulbs without fear of attack from plant predators, while you simultaneously bring in beneficial pollinators. Or put them next to roses as a chemical-free solution to keep hungry aphids away.

Timing is Everything
If your landscaping looks a little lackluster between daffodils and daylilies, alliums are the answer! When early-spring flowers are fading, these remarkable blooms are just beginning—exactly what your garden needs until summer perennials and annuals arrive. These enduring flowers can retain their colour as long as a month—and even after the blooms have faded, their attractive seed heads remain a focal point in the garden and dried arrangements.

Carefree and Easy to Grow
Alliums will grow well in any sunny location with well-drained, fertile soil and adequate moisture. Simply plant them in the fall like any other bulb. They will naturalize freely for more and more fireworks every year!

Create a Pollinator Paradise!
In recent years, scientists all over the world have been concerned about the diminishing bee population. In fact, it's at its lowest point in over 50 years. One way to make your garden a haven for bees and other essential pollinators is by adding alliums!

These unique flowers are not only beautiful to humans, they're extremely enticing to our nectar loving friends like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. As your carefree alliums quickly multiply in the garden, you and your garden visitors will enjoy a bigger display each year!

An Abundance of Alliums in All Shapes and Sizes!
Breck's Carefree Allium Collection brings five diverse varieties right to your doorstep— a total of 80 bulbs! Our experts in Holland have put together this exciting mix of colours, scents, forms and bloom times to give you a "well-rounded" allium experience for an unbelievable price! Reserve your collection today, and we'll ship your premium bulbs at the perfect time for fall planting.

Alliums are not only beautiful to humans, they're extremely enticing to our nectar-loving friends like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
