Allium ‘Lavender Bubbles’ PP31126
Common Name: Ornamental Onion
Nearing the end of summer, this beautiful perennial brings life to a garden with its beautiful bubble-shaped flowers. Dark dusty purple flower globes are produced above attractive glaucous blue-green foliage. The leaf blades twist and curl to provide additional interest. Compared to the popular ‘Millenium’, ‘Lavender Bubbles’ blooms later and is a darker shade of purple. Like other Allium, ‘Lavender Bubbles’ is carefree, easy to grow, and deer and rabbit resistant.
Alliums are charming plants for the rock or herb garden. When the foliage is bruised, it smells like onions since they are in the onion family. Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers’ sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty.
