Ornamental onions offer intriguing spherical or egg-shaped inflorescences comprised of hundreds of tiny flowers.

The lilac pink, spherical flower heads appear in late summer and bloom into fall. A distinctive and interesting ornamental plant in both flower and foliage for the front of the border or rock gardens.
