'Serendipity' Ornamental Onion Allium | Proven Winners

The word "serendipity" means an unexpected occurrence, and what a fitting name for this sport of the popular 'Millenium'! The sport shares all of the qualities that made 'Millenium' great, but with attractive blue foliage. Globe-like, rosy-purple flowers match the parent and are produced profusely in mid to late summer. When crushed, the leaves will emit a smell of onion.

Alliums are charming plants for the rock or herb garden. When the foliage is bruised, it smells like onions since they are in the onion family. Butterflies and honeybees adore the flowers' sweet nectar but deer and rabbits steer clear of this perennial beauty.
