Allium 'Summer Drummer'

A show-stopping allium that grows to spectacular heights!

Great for tall, sunny borders where you can watch pollinators forage at eye-level. The seed heads remain attractive as they dry, adding a sculptural element to the garden.
Blooms in late July/August. Naturalizes, and is deer and rodent resistant.
