Allium cernum / Nodding onion - Native - new!
Allium cernum plants resemble cultivated onions or daffodils. They form a rosette of strap shaped leaves that originate from a bulb below the ground.
Nodding pink onion is long-lived, super hardy and looks great in short prairie gardens and meadows. Plant this native allium in masses for a stunning late summer effect. Nodding Pink Onion does best in full or partial sun, and moist to medium conditions
During summer a flower scape emerges bearing an umbel shaped inflorescence. The entire loose flower cluster is about 2 inches across. It contains 40 or more small dangling lilac colored florets.
Hummingbirds love the nectar. Flowers also attract butterflies, native bees and honeybees. Insects that nectar here must be able to hang upside down.
Plants are 1-2’ tall with a 1’ spread at maturity.
Pot size: #1 (2.55 qts)
