Allium cernuum

Allium cernuum


Humus-rich, neutral to alkaline soils. The preference is full to partial sun, moist conditions and soil containing loam, sand, or rocky material. While this plant can survive hot dry summers, it does better with more moisture. Foliar disease is rarely a problem. This plant is easy to grow under cultivation, and it will spread gradually under suitable conditions. It is easier to establish plants by transplanting the bulbs of offsets, rather than by attempting to germinate the seeds.


Canada and the USA.


This plant produces nodding clusters of white to lavender-pink blooms from early to late summer.



Generally available from specialist mail order nurseries. Small numbers available from our nursery from September.
