Single Leaf Onion


allium_unifolium3

Allium unifolium is the most beautiful of the ornamental onions. That’s not just my opinion, it’s pedantic fact – I mean just look at the flush of those pink blush flowers with the little striping in them. Sometimes they’re more of a lavender color.

Native to coastal California all the way up to the Oregon border, they are a productive herbaceous perennial, producing lots of new bulbs every spring, and popping up pretty early with large swaths of flowers.

I recommend planting it among a garden filled with native grasses, and every spring you’ll get this little surprise of pink flowers poking out.
