Allium amplectens 'Graceful Beauty' (Ornamental Onion)

Paper Onion, Narrow-Leaved Onion, Slim-Leaf Onion, Spring Bulbs, Spring Flowers


Allium amplectens 'Graceful Beauty' (Ornamental Onion) is a hardy perennial bulb featuring globe-shaped flowerheads, up to 3 in. across (7 cm), packed with 10 to 50 starry white florets adorned with lavender stamens and purple anthers. Blooming in late spring to early summer, this particularly pretty Allium enjoys long-lasting blooms and remains ornamental in the garden well into summer. Clasping on the stems, the narrow leaves usually wither prior to the flower blooming.

  • Growing up to 12-16 in. high (30-40 cm), this beauty naturalizes easily and will come back year after year!
  • Easily grown in rich, sandy to gritty, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun.
  • Attracts butterflies, but deer ignore it!
  • Stunning in beds, borders, cottage gardens, rock gardens or containers. Spectacular in large sweeping drifts. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 10 to 15 bulbs). Excellent as cut flowers for both fresh and dried arrangements!
  • To be planted in fall.
