Alliums, aka ornamental onions, are some of the most beautiful flowering bulbs for the spring and summer garden. Onions, leeks, garlic, shallots, and chives – I’ve never met an Allium I didn’t like. Their lovely purple blossoms nod in the warm breeze on a summer day, standing out amongst all the leafy garden plants.
Alliums work well as a companion plant and help even more by deterring moths, mites and aphids. Spread them out in clumps throughout your garden, you’ll see them nodding to you everywhere you walk.
There is a solution for the garden and it comes in bulb form! Alliums!
