Allium sphaerocephalum, also referred to as the 'Drumstick' Allium, blooms in late June, producing 1" diameter flower heads. These wine-colored blooms sway in the wind on top of 24-30" sturdy stems. A magnificent plant with a long bloom time, these Allium add great interest and movement to the garden while also being deer resistant. They look amazing when planted among ornamental grasses and other low-growing perennials!

  • Allium require full sun for the best blooms
  • Well drained soil is a must for allium bulbs
  • In heavy, clay and poorly drained soils amend the soil prior to planting. Amend your existing soil by incorporating a combination of top soil, compost, manure, and leaf mold.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 3” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Plant allium bulbs 2-3” deep, with the old roots of the bulb touching the earth, the pointed end should be facing the sky.
  • Spacing will vary based on variety, refer to the Allium packaging for specifics. Plant allium in clusters or space throughout the garden for a neat geometric design element.
  • Immediately after planting, water the allium planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets. After the initial planting bulbs do not require additional watering in fall or winter and prefer to be kept dry.
  • Apply a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

These bulbs seemed healthy when planted so we'll see what happens this spring. I just love drumstick allium -- planted amongst yarrow and I'm excited to see the effect.

I am new to the Holland Bulb family, but I think I’m hooked! I recently put in two orders for these little drumstick allium beauties and I received an additional order free, which was so great! The bulbs were nice and healthy and I planted them in my pollinator garden and cannot wait to see them grow! Thanks Holland Bulbs for your excellent product and prices! 😊

I ordered drumstick alliums for the first time and I’m excited to seem these grows. The bulbs arrived in excellent condition and my only mistake was not ordering more. I love the way these look in my garden. Great for pollinators and great for repelling garden pests like deer and rabbits.
