Allium 'Ping Pong'
Common Name: Ornamental Onion Family: Amaryllidaceae (The Amaryllis Family)

Allium 'Ping Pong' has unusual, fuzzy looking spheres of white flowers opening from buds tinged pink. Rising three feet above the garden, flowers appear in July when other Allium are fading. Both the elongated sepals, which look like garlic scapes, and dried seed heads are attractive. Few plants can offer the unique flower forms of ornamental onions. Plant in groups of 3, 5, 7 or more for the greatest impact.
