This delightful, easy-to-grow, and most importantly, well behaved, dwarf ornamental garlic is one of our most cherished rock garden plants. The small bulbs offset in a perfect circle, making a fascinating little clump. Each bulb is topped with upright slightly twisted grey-blue leaves. In late summer to early fall the clumps are topped with short stalks of pink garlic-like flowers. We have never known this allium to seed in the garden, despite 20+ years of cultivation...Charming!
