ALLIUM CHRISTOPHII STAR OF PERSIA – THE LARGEST FLOWER OF ALL ORNAMENTAL ONIONS! SEEDS $3.50 $2.50

ALLIUM CRISTOPHII STAR OF PERSIA!

Allium cristophii, the Persian onion or star of Persia, is a species of flowering plant in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to Central Asia, Iran, Turkey, and Turkmenistan. Star of Persia is easy to grow and will eventually form a bulb that grows 15-60cms tall and has the largest flower cluster of all the ornamental onions.

Use in the garden for a showy, butterfly loved flower. The flat strap-like leaves die back before flowering begins. In late spring clusters of silvery lavender flowers appear and make great cut or dried flowers if you aren’t letting them go to seed. Leaving the dried flower heads on provides late-season interest.

They distinguish themselves by their remarkable size and as a filler in a flowering garden. This is due to them flowering just after the spring flowers go to seed and before the exuberant full bloom of summer flowering plants. Makes a beautiful border or pot display.
