Fluffy violet blooms as big as soccer balls

Every spring bulb garden needs a ornamental onion, and 'Globemaster' is undoubtedly the star of the family, with giant 8-inch soccer-ball-sized bloomheads of lavender-pink. Appearing at the end of the season, 'Globemaster' Ornamental Onion bridges the gap between spring and summer, carrying the garden into its greatest season of glory.

'Globemaster' Ornamental Onion arises on a very thick, sturdy stem that can reach 2½ to 3 feet tall. 'Globemaster' is not strongly scented, but it does keep pests at bay while attracting good pollinators—bees and butterflies—into the garden. Simply set the bulb into the warm spring soil and watch 'Globemaster' Ornamental Onion take off.

This flower remains in bloom for nearly 3 weeks, gradually drying out on the plant. As 'Globemaster' becomes papery, cut the stem and use the bloom as an everlasting in indoor arrangements. 'Globemaster' Ornamental Onion will last for months.

'Globemaster' Allium is a Dutch hybrid, repeating more reliably than its cousin, Allium giganteum. Because 'Globemaster' Allium is sterile, 'Globemaster' Allium puts all its energy into producing more flowers instead of making seeds—and you reap the benefits. Ideal combined with low-growing, mounding perennials.

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.
