Allium schoenoprasum ‘Alba’


Allium schoenoprasum ‘Alba’ is a white-flowering variety of the species. It is generally not as prolific as the straight species, but, the white flowers can add a welcome bright spot in light shade. Leaves are blue-green to green in summer, gradually turning yellow with cold temperatures. Foliage may remain green in mild winters, or, if planted in a more protected location. Flowers attract butterflies, bees, and birds. Available as bare root bulbs. Please contact us if you are interested in installing this plant as plugs.
