Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALLIUM 'Beau Regard'
Beau Regard Ornamental Onion, Ornamental Onion
This excellent allium hybrid displays enormous, rosy-purple flower clusters on tall, sturdy stems in late spring to early summer. Its starry, individual florets are packed densely in rounded globes that can be as large as 8 inches (20 centimeters) in diameter, adding instant drama to mixed beds and borders. They rise from low rosettes of bold, strappy, deep green leaves that remain attractive while the plants are in flower, unlike those of many other alliums.
In autumn, plant the bulbs of ‘Beau Regard’ in fertile, well-drained soil at a depth of two to three times their diameter. Full sun is essential, and drier summer soil conditions are preferable. Lift and divide the bulbs only when they become crowded.
Give this dramatic perennial a starring role in the mixed border or rock garden, or use it to dress up the vegetable garden. Plant singly or in groups among the foliage of other plants in order to mask the dying leaves at the base of the stems. Large alliums such as ‘Beau Regard’ are wonderful combined with other late spring to early summer bloomers such as Siberian iris, roses, and meadow sage. They also add punch to fresh or dried flower arrangements. Just one in a vase makes a powerful statement.
