Allium 'Serendipity' forms two inch spheres on tall blue-green stems like rose-purple balloons floating in the summer garden.
Allium 'Serendipity' forms clumps of slender, flattened, linear, glossy blue-green leaves in the spring followed in summer by showy two inch spherical umbels of glowing rose-purple florets. One of its parents is the popular 'Millenium'. Ornamental onions provide a flower display unlike most other perennials and are thus useful for contrasting flower shapes in the garden.
