Description

A long-blooming selection, Allium 'Millenium' features showy two-inch rosy-purple flower heads. These globe-shaped flowers are held high above a mound of attractive, glossy green foliage in late summer. Attractive seed heads appear after flowering.  Easy to grow and very tolerant of drier soil conditions, 'Millenium' will also add great color and texture to mixed perennial containers.  An excellent deer and rabbit resistant perennial.
