Schubertii Allium

Description
One of the most unique alliums we've found, Schubertii Allium is a conversation piece in the garden and cut-flower arrangements. Growing just 12-24" tall, it has 9-12" giant spherical umbels that are loaded with small, rose-purple, starlike flowers. While the flowers open in late spring to early summer, the flower heads can be left to dry after blooming, extending the season of interest. Schubertii Allium's eye-catching looks make it an ideal plant for borders, rock gardens and containers. It's an easy-to-grow, drought-tolerant plant that grows best when planted in full sun. While deer tend to avoid it, butterflies are attracted to it. Allium 'Schubertii'

Shipping Note:

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.
In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.
