The 2018 Perennial Plant of the Year! We are pleased to have introduced this stunning Allium nutans hybrid in 2000, from breeder Mark McDonough (aka Mr. Onion). Allium 'Millenium' represents several generations of breeding onions and is head and shoulders above any other allium we grow. The compact 1' tall x 1' wide clump of narrow, glossy green, deer-resistant leaves is topped for more than a month in late summer with 2" rosy-purple flower heads, which attract flocks of onion-loving butterflies and bees. We grow Allium 'Millenium' in several locations and have never seen any sign of a stray seedling...garliccimo! For the first few years, we used the spelling, Millennium, but Mark actually registered it as Millenium, so we've corrected our spelling.
