Ornamental Onion

Add texture and intrigue to the perennial border and containers with this ornamental onion who’s features mimic Medusa’s mythological snakes. The low mound of narrow grey-green foliage curls and twists, with the nodding buds resembling snake eyes before they open and begin to straighten. Flowers are a light amethyst purple forming nearly 2” round clusters that put on a show for nearly a month. Well behaved, it forms clumps that slowly spread with no seedlings. It is largely left alone by rabbits and deer.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 20 - 24"
  • Zone: 4 - 8
Plant Features are recommendations for optimal performance. Availability subject to change.

What Our Clients Have to Say

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
