Allium schubertii has a whimsical look to it: the carpels are about 5cm long, while the stamens protrude to about 20cm. This gives it the appearance of a firework going off, and is the reason why we’ve included it in our catalogue: the Allium schubertii is different to all other ornamental onions!

However, the bulbs only return so many times, and they don’t reproduce vegetatively. To ensure you’ve still got them growing in your garden after a few years, it’s therefore important to leave the plants to self seed (don’t weed out the seedlings by accident!). Or, alternatively, you can always plant new ones. Allium schubertii is ideal amongst low perennials or groundcover plants.
