This cute little allium will bring an “oooh what’s that” when visitors view your rock garden or trough. Just tell them it’s “Curly Chives”.
Be sure to place them in full sun where they won’t be shaded by larger plants. The low growing swirl of twisted foliage is grey green and flat like a garlic chive (but not as long) and has the same onion/garlic flavor. The 1” pink to lavender pom-pom flowers are held high on 6 to 8” stems.
This no maintenance plant is drought tolerant once established. Butterflies love them.
