Allium 'Pink Planet' has been a superb performer in our heat and humidity tolerance trials. This Intrinsic Perennial Gardens introduction forms a nice clump of slightly twisted, thin, glaucous, blue-green leaves, thanks to the influence of Allium senescens. The vigorous, deer-resistant clumps are topped, starting for us in late June (NC) with numerous 18" tall stalks, each terminating in a 3" wide, dense flower head of pale lilac flowers...or if you're color blind (i.e., male), pink. If you don't overuse pesticides, Allium 'Pink Planet' is a great attractant to bees and butterflies (not included). Our 10-year-old clumps are now 2' wide, and so far, no seedlings have been spotted. Allium 'Pink Planet' is a great rock garden plant, so a nice sunny, well-drained spot will be very satisfactory.
