The flower heads start out a dark green colour and mature to a deep maroon-red from the tip down as the season progresses. They are a great accompaniment to ornamental grasses in a border

Also known as round headed leek or garlic or Drumsticks.

Can be grown in open ground or in pots (with free draining soil).

Originated in Europe and West Asia and is a member of the Amaryllidaceae family.

  • Perennial habit.

  • Reaches approx 36" (90 cm) tall.
  • Plants 3" (7.5 cm) apart and 3" (7.5 cm) deep.
