Drumstick Allium has a striking visual impact in the early summer garden when planted in masses or peeking up through and among perennials or shrubs. One-inch ovoid-shaped flower heads are formed by dense clusters of tiny flowers that start green transitioning to pink and finally mature to a raspberry purple. Long wiry stems that grow to 24” hold up the egg-shaped florets which are proportionally small to the height giving it the appearance of a drumstick. 

                                                         25 bulbs- $9.95
