Goes Great With
DescriptionLet the rich hues and fascinating textures of this delightful duo take your garden to a new level of beauty and biodiversity.
More than just a buzz word, biodiversity is the common goal of many modern gardeners. Natural ecosystems have a wide variety of plants and insects, and ideally so should our gardens. By offering plants that native pollinators prefer, you can bring balance back to your little corner of the world.
Breck's® Bee Beacon Collection includes two bold beauties that bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and humans can't resist. Each a statement specimen on its own, large Allium aflatunense and Caerulea Camassia flowers will bloom simultaneously with spectacular form and colour.
This "Attractive" Display Is Worth The Wait
A busy pollinator's work is never done, so be sure your garden can attract and sustain them all season. Our new Bee Beacon Collection is perfect for bridging the gap between early-spring bulbs and summer perennials. Equal parts allium and camassia combine to create a long-blooming blend in two cool shades. Strong, stately stems will keep your flowers highly visible to winged garden visitors.
