Description

Allium acuminatum (tapertip onion)

Striking pink to magenta ball of flowers

Tapertip onion grows in a variety of habitats from low elevations in very dry conditions to grasslands and rocky areas at middle elevations.  Looks much like chives, with the bulb sending up slender green leaves first, followed by a flower stem with a striking pale pink to magenta cluster of flowers at the top. Limit of 6 bulbs/order. Photo by Ben Legler.

NOTE: These are bulbs – plant them at least 3 inches deep.  Should be planted within a few days of purchase if possible.
