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
