Description

Allium 'Millenium,' also known as ornamental onion, sports 2" globes of purply-pink blooms on tall stems in mid to late summer over clumps of deep green, flattened, grass-like leaves that arise from the soil line. Unlike many others, Allium 'Millenium' is a true clump-former with sterile seed so it does not spread about the landscape. Allium 'Millenium' was chosen as Perennial Plant of the Year in 2018 by the Perennial Plant Association.

Ornamental onion is a bulbous plant that prefers full sun and well drained, moist to dry soil. Allium 'Millenium' is also well-adapted to sandy soils. Great as a cut flower.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
