Star-like blossoms on downward-facing umbels dangle from each hooked stem, in shades of cream, pink, and lavendar. Grows best in full or partial sun and a variety of moist soil conditions including clay. Easy to grow and will gradually spread by seed and bulbs. Plant in mass for a stunning display. Like all the Allium species, Nodding Onion has a pungent smell when bruised, making it deer-resistant. A native bee magnet!
