Allium cernuum- Nodding Onion


This delicate onion, also known as Lady’s Leek, has the typical cluster of flowers, called an umbel, like most Onions; however this plant’s pink bell-like flowers are on a bent stalk so they gently nod toward the earth. It is very adaptable but is most often found on ledges, in dry meadows, gravel, or rocky slopes. It will attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and is deer resistant, which makes it an even more special addition to any garden.
