Allium Sphaerocephalon Drumstick

(9 reviews) Write a Review

Two-toned, egg-shaped heads are raspberry on top and green below. Florets open slowly from the top down, extending the show for weeks. Slender stems give this allium a more informal look than others. A perfect companion for ornamental grasses and good for growing up through other plants.

    Drumstick Alliums

    Posted by Brooke Hoffman on Jun 25th 2022

    This is my first experience growing drumstick alliums. It’s been so fun watching them grow, and grow, and grow. And then comes the color show. They’re absolutely beautiful and will be such a fun addition to my Growing Kindness bouquets.

    Allium Drumstick

    Posted by Lisa Hodges on Jun 24th 2022

    I love Alliums! They look best when planted in clumps. I made the mistake of planting them sporadically here and there. I'll be digging them up after blooming to put them in a grouping. This makes for a beautiful show. I've always received beautiful bulbs and have been happy with my order.

    Allium drumstick

    Posted by karen babjak on Jun 23rd 2022

    First time ordering allium drumsticks and they are true to color. Two tone raspberry. Tall, strong and sturdy . The blogs were very helpful in design, care, and when to plant. I found longfield gardens from a YouTuber “ impatient gardener “. I was not disappointed and have been ordering ever since. Highly recommend! I live in Ohio and my orders come on time, well packaged and very healthy.

    They bloom fine. It was my bad that I didn't plan them on time. So far, 80-90% of bulbs I bought from Longfield Gardens have bloomed, unlike other online websites whose bulbs are far inferior.

    Lovely but need more!

    Posted by CJ S. on Jun 23rd 2022

    These are beautiful but I need to add more for the right effect. I do also wish they were a bit more sturdy. They have a tendency to lean on each other, but very pleased overall.

    I purchased 3 varieties. As each has bloomed I thought it was magnificent, but then came the next and it surpassed the former. SO HAPPY

    The size of the drumstick alliums were larger than I expected.
