Fluffy Blooms as Big as Soccer Balls! ‘Allium ‘Globemaster’ is truly the king of Alliums! Gigantic, up to 10″ (25 cm) round, balls of aster purple flowers tower on sturdy stems with long strap-like leaves. Tall and showy, ‘Globemaster’ produces dense globes of blooms on stems up to 3 feet tall. Flowering period lasts for several weeks to a month. The new florets constantly appear and cover the old ones. Used as a commercial cut flower. Prefers fertile, very well-drained soil.
Alliums, or ornamental onions, are easy to grow bulbs that are increasing in popularity. They look wonderful in cut bouquets and make a unique accent in any perennial border or bed. If you have problems with deer or rodents, Alliums are an excellent choice as they find them distasteful! Position where other plants will help to hide their sometimes-untidy foliage. Excellent for use as cut or dried flowers. Attracts butterflies, too.
