Ornamental onions offer intriguing spherical or egg-shaped inflorescences comprised of hundreds of tiny flowers. This royal blue flowered species hails from central Asia, western Siberia and China. The leaves wither by the time the flowering begins so plant some low growing perennials just in front of or on top of the bulbs to mask the foliage. Available in spring as potted plants and in fall as dry bulbs.
