Allium stellatum
Joy Creek Photo Archive (c) all rights reserved
Although the standard description of Allium stellatum, a prairie native, says that it blooms after the foliage dies back, our form (perhaps due to our temperate climate) maintains its foliage during bloom. The two-inch rosy globe flowers are produced on and off from midsummer forward.

Mid- to late summer.  8-14 in. x 3-4 in.

Rose flowers

Sun     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Like other members of the allium family, the scent and taste of both foilage and flowers is usually not favored by deer.
