Ornamental onions are an often overlooked choice for the home garden and what a shame! Big Beauty allium not only has large, eye-catching globes of pink flowers but attractive gray-green, strappy leaves as well. This hardy perennial emerges in the spring and sends up tall stalks of globe-shaped flowers throughout the summer, attracting bees, butterflies, and other beneficial pollinators. Drought-tolerant once established, ornamental onions love the heat and are typically not loved by deer. Big Beauty allium forms upright clumps that are approximately 18 to 24 inches tall and wide, making it a great choice for container planters, borders, mass plantings and even hanging baskets.
