Allium Curly Mauve Garden Chives
Curly Mauve Garden Chives, Allium begins its show early season and keeps on giving. In spring leaves emerge prostrate and curling, looking like the leaves are in the middle of an intricate dance. As the leaves mature they take on a pretty blue-green appearance and straiten out. In June pretty pom poms of lavender shoot up on long stems.
Edible too! The flowers and leaves are great additions to a wide variety of dishes, from salads to potatoes to sauces.
Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers’ sweet nectar, but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty. An ideal choice for mass plantings.
Plant in full sun in average to rich soil.
