Allium stellatum

Allium stellatum

Prairie Onion

New to me this year, grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery.

For hot, sunny sites on the dry side. These are entirely unbothered by drought but don’t handle competition from taller species well.

Like most, if not all, alliums, their foliage is edible while also being unappealing to most wildlife.

Grows to around 14” in height and blooms in mid summer.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.

The Online Plant Nursery will re-open for orders on Tuesday, May 17th

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
