When looking for an eye-catching perennial to place in your late-spring garden, you can't go wrong with this totally unique Allium! The highly unusual flowers feature up to 100 striking purple florets on 16–18" stems that radiate from a central ball-shaped umbel.

Oh. Em. Geee!! This is the BEST flower I have ever grown!It is so unique and even after it's done blooming it is still just so much fun to look at and talk about! My neighbors have all just poohed and ahhhed over it! The base has the appearance of a tulip but then the flowers appear and it just continues to get better and better!! If you want something unique in your flowerbed.....THIS IS YOUR PLANT!!I will be purchasing quite a few more!!

Super interesting to look at, and after it was finished blooming, my neighbor and I came up w/ the idea of spray painting the dried flower, added a little glitter and it makes a great addition to flower pots! Will probably have to order more if I can figure out where I have space.
