Allium Stipitatum

This allium bears a close resemblance to Gladiator — so close that your average person would have trouble telling them apart. Five-inch heads of starry lilac flowers in late spring, around the same time as Mount Everest. Think of them as outsized lollipops. They make dramatic and showy harbingers of summer. We pronounce the name stip-ih-TAY-tum.

Bloom Time Very Late
Bloom times are relative within the spring bulb season, which varies from place to place and year to year. They are intended to help you plan a sequence of bloom from Very Early season to Very Late season. About two weeks separate Early from Mid and Mid from Late. The start and duration of bloom is heavily dependent on the weather. Warm temperatures speed up growth and flowering; cold temperatures slow them down.

Planting Instructions

Plant in full sun or light shade and well-drained soil. Sandy soil is ideal. Allium leaves will yellow by the time the flowers open. You can disguise the foliage by planting large alliums among bushy perennials or shrubs, and small alliums among low-growing perennials. The flower heads of large-headed alliums remain attractive even after the color fades. They can be left in the garden or cut and dried for use in indoor arrangements. Species alliums (e.g., siculum, moly) may self-sow.

Depth of Planting Hole 7 inches
Spacing 5 inches apart

Success with bulbs depends first and foremost on sunshine and soil that drains well.

When to Plant

The short answer is “fall,” but we can be a little more precise.
