Quick Overview:

‘Serendipity’ features blue-tinged foliage and was discovered as a sport of the hybrid ornamental onion Allium ‘Millenium’. Globe-shaped inflorescences of purple flowers reaching 1.5-2″ in diameter are held above the foliage on sturdy stems in mid to late summer. The flowers are suitable for fresh cut arrangements. Mature clumps will reach up to 1.75′ tall and 1.5′ wide.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)

Description

Easily grown in rich, sandy to gritty, dry to medium moisture, well-drained loams in full sun. Plants form dense, slowly-spreading clumps over time. They perform best in dry, sunny areas of the garden. Established plantings have good drought tolerance. Plant new bulbs 2-4″ deep in fall. Established plants may be divided in fall. Bulbils that may form in the umbel may also be planted in fall. Plants may self-seed in the garden. Deadhead flowers before seed sets to help control any unwanted spread.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
