Allium Schubertii is a real sensation for your garden! This incredible flower looks like a New Year’s sparkler in your hand! Allium Schubertii is also called tumbleweed onion and it grows beautiful, ornamental star-shaped flowers that widely spread and grow on different lengths in a beautiful purplish-pink colour. This allium is a native from Asia and has an aroma of an onion if it’s cut. Allium Schubertii is a fantastic transition between the spring and the summer as it blooms between May and June. When fully grown, it reaches 40-50 cm in length. 

Allium belongs to the same family as garlic and onion, that is why it’s called an “ornamental onion”. Make sure to plant your allium in a dry and well-drained (sandy) soil and open areas with full sun.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the allium bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the allium bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
