2 1/2- to 3-foot stalks shoot up in early summer, towering above the perennials!
Enjoy the fresh flowers for 3 weeks, then let them dry for terrific Everlasting arrangements that last for months!
Early in summer, 2 1/2- to 3-foot stems are topped by gigantic violet-pink flowerheads -- some fully 8 inches wide! This terrific Dutch hybrid blooms for up to 3 weeks, repeating more reliably than its cousin, Allium giganteum. Because it's sterile, it puts all its energy into producing more flowers instead of making seeds -- and you reap the benefits! Ideal combined with low-growing, mounding perennials. Zones 4-8.

So tall-blooms so round with hundreds of timey flowers making up each ball. Decorative when the blooms dry. Very tough-strong.......I need many more of these. Very different very unique.
