(Ornamental Onion) It’s always fun when a ‘sport’ is found and that is the case with Allium ‘Serendipity’. A blue foliage Allium was found mixed in with Allium ‘Millenium’ a green foliage form, this resulted in an unexpected occurrence or “serendipity”. With all the great attributes that ‘Millenium’ boasts, ‘Serendipity’ features loads of 1.5-2 inch purple globe-shaped flowers on a 15-20 inch tall mounding blue-green clump. Mid to late-summer the flowers appear bringing with them the hum of pollinators and butterflies. The fragrant foliage smells like onions when crushed. Hardy in zones 4-8, Allium likes to be grown in full sun to part sun locations and is drought tolerant once established. Easy to grow and makes a nice cut flower, ‘Serendipity’ is a perfect selection for mass plantings as well as a garden border. Allium ‘Serendipity’ is a Proven Winners® Perennial.

    Our Serendipity offered such beautiful balls of purple goodness when it bloomed. We planted in late May and it was blooming in the peak of summer, they seem like they are pretty drought tolerant and low maintenance.

    This would be my 3rd year with this plant. I love it. Very little care and it blooms profusely. My question is whether it spreads on it’s own because I have what look like little plants coming up near it. Or maybe I just have to wait and see if they produce.
