Why we love this flower:

  • Uses: Prominent focal flower in arrangements, ornamental edible 

Alliums are the ornamental cousins of onions. What does "F1" mean? F1 hybrid seeds refers to the selective breeding of a plant by cross pollinating two different parent plants, indicating a newer variety into the flower garden world.

Twice as big as other chives, this variety produces tender edible flat leaves and flowers. Perfect for the patio or the garden, the odorless flowers will last up to 3 weeks in a vase. The blooms begin to appear in June and will flower through October.

Allium flowers rarely smell like onions—it's the foliage that smells strong, and only when you crush it. They are easy to grow; few spring-flowering bulbs are as undemanding as alliums. They bloom profusely in full sun, but tolerate a surprising amount of shade.
