Home : Specials of the Week
Autumn can be a very dull and boring time in the garden. You miss all the colorful plants that have delighted you spring and summer while you're busy deadheading or collecting seeds. The memories of the flowers you've enjoyed are just that, you're wishing there were perennials that would bring you color and joy this time of year and well..... your wish has come true. The "Plant Genie" wishes to acquaint you with Allium stellatum. Commonly known as "Autumn Onion", Allium stellatum is a native, fall blooming perennial that will grow happily anywhere in the US.
Their long lasting, 2" - 3" lavender/pink, star like blooms seem to explode like fireworks at the tip of their slender 12" - 18" arching stems. They look vital for several weeks and make wonderful cut flowers.
Full sun to light shade is their preference with average to dry soil. Allium stellatum has no insect, pest or disease problems. You needn't worry about Bambi or any other critters bothering them either.
Allium stellatum produces new bulbs each growing season and you can even grow them from seed, although since it takes several years to get a flowering size bulb from seed, division is the best method to build a colony quickly.
I've some nice bareroot plants of Allium stellatum to share with you and shipping is FREE, pricing follows:
7 for $ 35.00 delivered ($5.00 ea)
Larger quantities at even lower prices upon request.
If you have any questions about this plant or any of the other plants that I offer, send an email to my personal email address - firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll reply as quickly as I can. If you'd like a return phone call, please include your phone # and the best time to call.
And, if you don't have the time or desire to plant them at this point in time, you can still reserve them for a later ship date by specifying that date in a space provided on our order form. Please circle the ship date in red crayon so I don't miss it.
Ordering couldn't be easier! Just fill out the order form at http://www.sunfarm.com/orderform.pdf
