Allium tripedale

Related to A. siculum ssp. bulgaricum, this Mediterranean native has delicate, yet substantive, 4"+-wide umbels of 20 to 30 pendant, bell-shaped pale rose-pink florets with fuchsia starbursts. Each umbrella-like umbel emerges from a papery sheath after which the little nodding buds spread, growing on wiry 4" stems. As the buds elevate, the flowers open to reveal interior, anther-studded green eyes. Its strappy, ground-level foliage usually browns out prior to flowering. Rabbit-, rodent- and deer-resistant, A. tripedale is related to A. siculum ssp. bulgaricum. It prefers a well-draining spot in full sunlight. In order for the flowers to color up to their full pink potential, A. tripedale requires full sunlight, otherwise they may bloom more white. Bulb size: 10/12 cm. May/June. HZ: 5-10. 32" to 36". 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. Allium are The Art & Soul of Spring and Summer.

  • Information
  • Allium
    Latin for garlic, the Flowering Onions are available in diverse heights and sizes, are rabbit-, rodent- and deer-resistant, and are seldom affected by disease. Adored by bees, butterflies and pollinators, Allium extend the spring flowering season with bold, dramatic color and statuesque garden architecture. They are also valuable cut and dried flowers.

    Allium require full sunlight although there are several varieties that can also thrive in partial sunlight: A. cowanii, oreophilum and siculum bulgaricum. Allium require rich, well-draining and neutral pH soil and benefit from a summer dry period. A. unifolium can handle soil with a bit more moisture. All Allium must be planted outdoors in the fall after the soil has cooled down to around 55°F (normally after two weeks of night time temperatures hovering around 40°F). While most Allium are not recommended for forcing over the winter, there are several varieties that are known to be good forcers: A. cowanii, karataviense and unifolium. Please note that flower size is presented as the width, or diameter, from left to right.

    Plant the larger Allium bulbs 6" to 8" deep and 8" to 10" apart. Plant the smaller Allium bulbs 4" deep and 3" to 4" apart. Top size bulbs. Bloom time: May through August depending on the variety. Height: variable depending on the variety. Variable horticultural zones ranging from 3-10 depending on the variety.

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