Allium Millenium bare rootAllium (al-lee-um), Chives, Ornamental Onion, ramps, spring onion, ramson, wild leek, wood leek, and wild garlic; Lily Family,are often known as "the onions", although the edible onion is only one of many species in this genus, some of which bear strikingly handsome flowers. Native to many parts of the Northern Hemisphere; they are almost all hardy perennials. 

Tolerates soil of any fertility and clay soil. These selections have not been known to reseed and is not invasive. It may be propagated in fall by digging it up and dividing the rhizome with the bulblets attached. Allium is typically pest and disease free. 

Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers' sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty. Onion may be a big part of the human diet, but the flavor is a turn off for the grazers. Deer and rabbits only touch this plant as a last resort. The flowers, however, attract pollinators!
