Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALLIUM senescens ssp. montanum
One of the few ornamental onions to bloom in late summer, this native of Europe and Central Asia bears small dense umbels of cup-shaped lilac-pink flowers on compact stems. The grassy, pungently scented leaves appear in spring and remain green all season. The leaves and flower stems grow from narrow bulbs clustered on a shallow rhizome.
Siberian onion prefers sun and well-drained soil and tolerates drought once established. Lift and divide the clumps only when they become crowded. Grow this diminutive plant in groups in the mixed border, alpine bed, rock garden, or containers. Deadhead to prevent self-sowing.
