Nodding Pink Onion Allium ceruum
1. Nodding Pink Onion
Found on ledges, in dry meadows, gravel, rocky or wooded slopes, this delicate onion has gently nodding pink flowers in late spring. Beautiful in the garden or naturalized in a meadow. Easy, dependable and very drought tolerant once established. 4C-South   12"-18" 8"-10" 3-9 4½" White
Onion Onion
2. Candy F1
Intermediate Day Candy F-1 Onion makes it possible to grow a sweet storage onion in the north with the mild flavor of a short-day southern variety! This onion produces very large, white, sweet, deep globe-shaped bulbs with small necks and golden brown skin. If well-cured, keeping them until March should be no problem. Candy is not affected by day length like other onions and is considered day-neutral. Day neutral varieties are a relatively new development and a great boon to gardeners. They can be grown in almost any latitude and bulb up when the plant has sized up.   Click to display 'Candy F1' tag image n/a n/a n/a n/a 8-10 4" Green

Onion (Ornamental) Allium
4. Medusa
This ornamental onion has snaky, twisty leaves that will remind you of the snake hair from the Medusa legend. ‘Medusa’ forms a low mound of grey-green, narrow foliage with leaves the twist slightly at the end. The nodding buds look like snakes at the tips of the stems, before they straighten to form 1.75-2” rounded clusters of light amethyst purple flowers. Similar in flower color and flower foliage to ‘Blue Eddy’, but in a much larger form. Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers' sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty.   Click to display 'Medusa' tag image 20"-24" 24" 4-8 8" Green
5. Millenium
It forms a compact, upright clump of glossy green, thick and strappy leaves which emit a slight smell of onion when crushed. In late July and August here in Michigan, a profusion of large 2”, bright rosy purple, tightly rounded clusters of flowers appear on strong stems just above the attractive foliage. Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers' sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty. This plant has not been known to reseed in the landscape and is very easy to grow. 10C-North Click to display 'Millenium' tag image 15"-20" 10"-15" 5-8 8" Green
Allium schoenoprasum
6. Snowcap
This semi-dwarf variety has wispy, pristine white flowers. Fine, grassy gray-green foliage looks nice all season long. Plant it in well-drained soil. Holds up well in the heat and humidity of summer. Deadhead to prevent reseeding. Attacts bees and butterflies and is rabbit and deer resistant. 10C-South Click to display 'Snowcap' tag image 12"-15" 12"-18" 2-9 8" Green
Allium Tanguticum
7. Summer Beauty
Highly attractive ornamental onion of long seasonal interest. From late June through July rounded heads, 1 1/2", of lavender-purple cup shaped flowers complement the narrow, glossy rich dark green foliage. In fall, the foliage turns an attractive yellow, a nice contrast to the reddish-brown flower stems that last well into the winter. Sterile flowers prevent any invasive issues. Drought and light shade tolerant.   Click to display 'Summer Beauty' tag image 18"-24" 12"-15" 4-9 8" Green
Allium x senescens
8. Pink Planet
Allium 'Pink Planet' forms a nice clump of slightly twisted, thin, glaucous blue-green leaves, thanks to the influence of Allium senescens. The vigorous, deer-resistant clumps are topped with numerous 18" tall stalks, each terminating in a 3" wide, dense flower head of pale pink flowers. Allium 'Pink Planet' is a great attractant to bees and butterflies. Finally, this plant is a superb performer in heat and humidity. 10C-South Click to display 'Pink Planet' tag image 18" 12"-24" 4-9 8" Green
