Spectacular and eccentric. Emerging early in the late winter these are at some risk in extreme winters, but when planted in a warm sunny garden and given a dry warm summer rest following their flowering, they can be fabulous. Like a tumbleweed, the long spokes are what they might roll away on when dry, the seeds held on the shorter extensions. A vegetable explosion or firework caught mid burst!
Allium schubertii bulbs should be planted in good soil 3-4" (8-10 cm) deep and allow a 15" (38cm) spacing, in a warm and sunny spot. Leave dry and allow to sunbaked in the summer.
Height 18" (45cm)
