Medusa Ornamental Onion
Allium ‘Medusa’ PP28,701
Add texture and intrigue to the perennial border and containers with this ornamental onion who’s features mimic Medusa’s mythological snakes. The low mound of narrow grey-green foliage curls and twists, with the nodding buds resembling snake eyes before they open and begin to straighten. Flowers are a light amethyst purple forming nearly 2 inches round clusters that put on a show for nearly a month. Well behaved, it forms clumps that slowly spread with no seedlings. A favorite of butterflies and bees, it is largely left alone by rabbits and deer.
