Allium scorodoprasum 'Passion'
Common Name: Sand Leek Family: Alliaceae (The Onion Family)

Allium 'Passion' is a cool ornamental onion with open heads of magenta-red florets on tall stems. Bulbils form at the base of the florets and are great for bulking up your clumps or sharing. Few plants can offer the unique flower forms of ornamental onions. Every garden should have Alliums. Plant in multiples of 3, 5, 7 or more. Don't fret when foliage starts to die back just before flowering. It's normal. Just trim the leaves.
