Allium ‘Millennium’ is a clump-forming perennial with large attractive rounded blooms made up of tiny pink-purple, star-shaped flowers from June to August. The flowers sit on sturdy stems approximately 60 cm above a tightly packed clump of grass-like thick green leaves. The foliage has a strong onion scent and its flowers have been noted to have an exceptionally longer flowering period than other varieties. Attracts lots of pollinators. Creates a wonderful display if planted in masses. It reaches a maximum average height of 60 cm, spread 40 cm. It is excellent as a cut flower in either fresh or dried arrangements!
Suggested Care: Allium ‘Millennium’ should be planted in fertile, well-drained soils, positioned in a sunny position but can withstand partial shade. Once the flowers begin to die off, you should cut them back to encourage new growth and foliage. This variety of Allium is drought tolerant.
Planting Instructions: Break up the soil well before planting and dig a hole twice the size of the pot. Remove plant from the pot by tapping the rim of the pot in ‘up side down’ position. Do not pull the plant from the pot. Firm soil after planting and water regularly for the first month.
