Allium cernuum

(Nodding onion)

Growth: A bulb native to almost all of North America, the nodding onion naturalizes by self-seeding and by bulb offsets to form large colonies. Grow in the herbaceous border, cottage garden or in a naturalized setting in full to part sun and medium to dry soil. 

Characteristics: Clumps of flat, narrow, grass-like leaves and loose, nodding clusters of pale pink bell-shaped flowers on a sturdy, leafless stem. Blooms early to mid-summer. All parts of the plant have an onion smell when crushed which helps to deter deer. An important source of food for bees and butterflies.
