Allium cernuum

‘Cernuum’, commonly called Nodding Onion, is a native perennial that features stunning star-like pink to lilac pink flowers. The stem bends so that the pink flowers at the top nod toward the ground. The nodding habit may also protect the nectar from rain. Expect blooms from mid to late summer (June - August). 

This low maintenance, easy to grow perennial prefers full sun to part shade and average to dry garden soil. Butterflies are attracted to the blooms while the plants are also deer resistant and drought tolerant. All parts of the plant have an "oniony" fragrance, but plants are for ornamental use only. 

Plants will naturalize by self-seeding, perfect for naturalized gardens! Deadhead flowers before seed sets to help control any unwanted spread. Foliage persists past flowering into late summer before dying back. Also works well when planted at the front of sunny borders, to edge pathways, in cottage and rock gardens. Eryngium and Echinacea make great companion plants.

Native to the Northern Hemisphere (Canada to Mexico).
