Bulb plant that produces 10" balls of purple flowers on tall, straight stems in late spring.
Don't let the common name turn you off from this outstanding addition to any garden. While a member of the Onion family, the only crying this plant will cause is tears of joy when you see its fabulous, one of a kind bloom! The large 10" in diameter purple flower balls are actually sweetly scented and a favorite for cut flower arrangements because of their long vase life. These giant purple globes bloom in late spring and add a texture to the garden that no other plant can touch! They are held aloft well above the foliage on strong straight stems that sway slightly in the wind. Plant in a tight group for a focal point or scatter them though your perennial garden for a month long display of deer, rabbit and rodent resistant color.

Will add a lovely texture to the garden
Grows well in a sunny location in rich, well-drained soil. After flowering, leave the foliage until it is completely brown or yellow so the bulb can absorb all the nutrients for next year's blooms.
