Allium Forelock

Looking a bit like Tom Hanks’ buddy Wilson in Castaway, Forelock has 2"- to 3"-wide, globe-shaped flowers that grow to 3" around with an unruly tuft of white-tipped, mahogany-red flowers exploding out of the top of their heads. The wiry stems stage a wild dance of spath-tipped curly cues before gradually almost-straightening out and bursting into bloom from the top to the bottom of their floret-clustered orbs. The flowers first appear round, with green buds on the bottom, then turn totally mahogany-red with star-shaped silvery-white stamens. Its next act reveals the emergence of unruly top tufts after which they slowly transform themselves into seed-pod encrusted sentries. Forelock is incredibly long-lasting and strong~perfect for thick clusters among perennial borders. (You may see a hole in the top of the bulb where last season's stem was.) Bulb size: 14 cm/up. June/July. HZ: 4-8. 24" to 36" plus!

We are very sorry, but due to state agricultural restrictions, we are not permitted to ship Allium bulbs to Idaho, or to the following five counties in the State of Washington: Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant and Klickitat.
